Buckeyes and Pinwheels.

I haven't posted a recipe in a while...

So I thought I'd share two today. This one is from my friend, Julie Krous. I made these over the holidays and froze several dozen (and since the hubs found the stash, that number is slowly diminishing...)

Sorry Michigan gals...

Ohio State Buckeyes

1 lb. butter 2 lbs. peanut butter

3 lb. confectioner sugar 1 lb. semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 bar paraffin 1 box toothpicks

Soften butter to room temp. Mix butter, peanut butter, sugar (mix well). Roll 1” balls and put on waxed paper-lined cookie sheets. Put a toothpick in the middle of each ball; freeze overnight. Melt chocolate in double boiler, cut paraffin and add to chocolate. Dip balls into melted chocolate to look like a Buckeye. Chill or freeze. Take toothpicks out and enjoy! Makes approx. 200 Buckeyes.


This one is a quickie stand-by that even my kids will eat. We're headed to a party tomorrow night and these will be in tow...
Cheese Pinwheels

1 pack Pillsbury Crescent rolls

Rondele cheese—Garlic & herb

Thinly sliced deli ham

Roll dough out, making 2 triangles into a rectangle, pressing seems to seal. Spread cheese out on dough, top with ham. Roll it up, and cut into slices. Bake at 375 for 12-15 minutes.


Have a wonderful weekend!!

I never knew you could freeze buckeyes. Please share the details on how you did it. What a great treat to have on hand! Thanks Trish!

Oh, yummy!!! I just saw your post about the PB Kids catalog and that lovely owl pillow :-) I got my catalog in the mail this week and I also fell in LOVE with that whole beding set and I told Richard that I want it for the baby's room which we haven't yet decorated or even begun for the baby that we don't yet have. LOL! Too stinking cute! HUGS!
