Buckeye Candy

2 cups peanut butter
1 1/2 boxes confectioners (powdered) sugar (1 1/2 lb)
2 sticks margarine (1 cup)
6 oz package chocolate chips
6 oz package butterscotch chips
2 tablespoons paraffin wax bar

Mix peanut butter, powdered sugar and margarine and roll into balls. Chill at least one hour. Melt chocolate chips, butterscotch chips and wax in double boiler or put one sauce pan into another one with about an inch or two of boiling water. Low heat on the stove. Stir until smooth. Dip each ball into the chocolate mixture to get the buckeye effect. Use a toothpick to dip the balls and smooth over the toothpick hole after dipping.

Note: We always used a piece of styrofoam to stick the toothpicks in after dipping the buckeyes. This gave them a place to cool without having to hold them.
