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.."
