@ peicook Buckeye candies.

I am not familiar with the name Buckeye candy but have just googeled the recipe and see that it is what we call "peanut butter balls". I make these see that the vegetable shortening is used in the chocolate for dipping. I think you can safely sub 1 tsp of vegetable oil with the chocolate.

You can try coconut oil if you have it. Hope this helps
