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 prepared the snowballs 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

Directions

In a bowl, combine the sugar, peanut butter and butter. Shape into 1-in. balls and place on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Chill for 30 minutes or until firm.
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.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • Save on prep time by using candy coating disks. No chopping needed!
  • Cookie scoops make quick work of shaping cookies into balls.

    "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."

    "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."
