Reviews for Peanut Butter Snowballs
"These are easy and delicious, melt in your mouth. We used milk chocolate for some and white chocolate for the rest.It makes a small batch, but was easy to double or triple."
"Very good! I liked that they are not loaded with butter. They go together easily and quickly. I used semisweet chocolate chips for a dip."
"Very easy and rich with taste, you dont need alot to satisfy.."
"Have been making these for years. They take a little time to get them to look pretty but they never fail to always be a hit year after year."
"Awesome! No other word describes these yummy treats."
"I have been making these for a few years now, I have read other reviews and see some were having trouble on the dipping part. I always chill my dough a good few hours and even over night, then the next day shape into balls place balls on a tray and put in the freezer until they are very firm, then dip into chocolate, this will help alot on the dipping hope this helps the ones that are having trouble."
"I added 1/2 tsp vanilla to my second batch. Exactly what the recipe needed. Yummy and super easy."
"The trick to making the coating stick is to chill them in the ball form and quickly dip and roll them into the chocolate because the peanut butter balls start to get soft and the chocolate will start to fall off. I hope it helps"
"These are really good. I plopped little blobs on the cookie sheet and then chilled them. I rolled them into balls right before I dipped in chocolate, because at first they were smearing in my hands. They don't look like the picture because as you dip them in the hot chocolate they started to get soft and not stay in a ball shape, but they are tasty anyway. Maybe rolling into balls and then freezing them would make dipping easier, but who's got all day to do that? I sprinkled a little colored sugar on each, so then they look better."
"How do you all dip these...it is very messy...maybe there is a trick I do not know...yummy tho.."
"Easy to make & a family favorite at our house! We've been making them since the recipe was printed in TOH for Christmas 1994."
"These are out of this world. Very easy to make."
"These are super yummy! I made these last year to give away as gifts for Christmas and everyone raved over them. I'll be making them again this year!"
"There are wonderful, I used dark shoc. chips and white choc. so they were black and white. They taste wonderful"
"One of the best peanut butter balls I have made."
"Yum! I used chocolate almond bark because my husband doesn't like white chocolate. Should have doubled the recipe. Didn't stay around long! Will absolutely make again"
"We absolutely LOVED these! I didn't have white chocolate so I used semi-sweet chocolate chips. These are just like store bought Reese's Peanut Butter Cups or Eggs.One trick I did...I used my small "sauce" crockpot and melted the chocolate in there and dipped the balls in it...made it so easy!"
"Excellent, and easy"
"Wow! These are fantastic! They're easy to make and they look pretty too."
"These are super easy to make, they taste very nice & look nice on a platter. I added green & red colored sugar on the tops before they dried completely for Xmas time. The peanut butter goes with white chocolate very well. I had half a bag of white chocolate melts and then mixed in white chocolate chips & a bit of canola oil into my double boiler until it was silky smooth. I ended up making two batches, I used my one inch scooper/baller & I never got 24 out of the recipe. The first time It made 21, the second 22. Will make these again, just doubling the recipe from the start."
"Easy and delicious"
"Okay don't know what I was doing wrong with white chocolate , but it never got very smooth when melted. Then when I tried to dip the peanut butter balls in the chocolate they got very soft and messy. They were looking nothing like the picture. So I ended up mixing everything together (including the white chocolate) and making new balls. Those taste good, just aren't dipped in white chocolate."
"The recipe is very easy but do not use almond bark, that stuff is artificial, waxy and awful, use quality melting chocolate either white or dark."
"I used to make these with dar chocolate years ago. Can I use crunchy peanut butter and just use a little more? Has any one done this?"
"I'm thinking some Rice Krispies would be good in these!"
"Not only do I make this at Christmas but also at Easter but using pastel colored chocolate when I make them at Easter time."
"I use this recipe every year. HUGE HIT at my house."
"Great and so easy. Will certainly do these again, all my guests loved them."
"I made this the first time it came out in TOH magazine and been making it ever since. It is one of my kids and grandkids favorite with either white or chocolate coating. It is very easy to make. I would give it more stars if I could!! LOL"
"These were GREAT and SO EASY to make!!! They tasted like white chocolate receeses! YUMMY!!!!"
"Made them for a Christmas goodie tin. I changed the white candy coating to a milk chocolate coating and they were a great big hit. Will make them again."
"I have been making this recipe for several years now. One of my friends has to have these every Christmas or else LOL. I make milk chocolate balls too, comes out just like a round Reeses' cup"
"I tripled this recipe last Christmas and put them out for family to nibble on...every last one was eaten and my nephew told me to forget the present this year and just make a big batch of these for him."
"I have been making these since the first time I saw them in TOH. Now all my friends and neighbors can't wait for the holidays to receive them."
"I made these the first time I saw the recipe in TOH and now I make them for all kinds of holidays. Depending on the holiday, I put different colored sprinkles on them right after dipping them; before the white candy coating firms up. They are wonderful and easy to make!"
"I usually make a quadruple batch because they are so popular with my family and friends"
