Peanut Butter Snowballs

See also

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 wide range of events such as gatherings, bake sales, cookie exchange. I also put them in gift boxes to share with family, friends and neighbors at Christmas.

What You Need:
(Makes: 2 dozen or 24 servings)

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

What to Do:
STEP 1)
In a bowl, combine the sugar, peanut butter and butter. Shape into 1-inch balls and place on waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Chill for 30 minutes or until firm.

STEP 2) Meanwhile, melt the candy coating in a microwave-safe bowl. Dip balls and place on waxed paper to harden.

STEP 3) Happy Holidays & Enjoy!

*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.
