I am planning to make an easier on the cook Thanksgiving this year focusing on do ahead dishes and letting go of some of the old classics. This way I can see more of my family and a bit less of the kitchen.
These (Buckeyes and Pumpkin Delight) are great to do ahead and the recipes come from Diane my oldest, dearest, best friend in the whole world.
1 sleeve of graham crackers finely crushed, about 2 C.
1 lb. box of powdered sugar, about 4 C.
|Necked Buckeyes Chilling!!|
2 sticks of soft butter
1 T. vanilla
1/2 bar paraffin
1 lb. chocolate chips
|In line for Tasting!!|
Meanwhile over very low heat melt the paraffin and chocolate chips together. Using a toothpick or skewer affix the candy and dip into the chocolate swirling to cover and leaving about a a fingernail sized portion not dipped, thus the name, buckeye!!!
