Peanut Butter Snowballs Recipe

Publisher Photo
These creamy treats are a nice change from the typical milk chocolate and peanut butter combination. This recipe is also an easy one for children to help with. I prepare them for a bake sale at my granddaughter's school and put them in gift boxes I share with neighbors at Christmas. -Wanda Regula, Birmingham, Michigan

Ingredients

  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 pound white candy coating, coarsely chopped

Nutritional Facts

1 serving (1 each) equals 164 calories, 10 g fat (6 g saturated fat), 4 mg cholesterol, 39 mg sodium, 19 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 1 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a bowl, combine the sugar, peanut butter and butter. Shape into 1-in. balls and place on waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Chill for 30 minutes or until firm.
  2. Meanwhile, melt the candy coating in a microwave-safe bowl. Dip balls and place on waxed paper to harden. Yield: 2 dozen.
Editor's Note: Dark, white or milk chocolate confectionery coating is found in the baking section of most grocery stores. It is sometime labeled "almond bark" or "candy coating" and is often sold in bulk packages (1 to 1-1/2 pounds). It is the product used for dipping chocolate. A substitute for 6 ounces chocolate coating would be 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet, dark or white chocolate chips and 1 tablespoon shortening melted together.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 1, 2015

"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."
