Peanut Butter Snowballs, a creamy treat dipped in white chocolate! No-baking required and just four ingredients are needed to make these. An easy treat to make with kids!
Peanut Butter Snowballs
These no-bake peanut butter snowball treats are wonderful any time of year, but these seem to make it to the cooking tray only over the Christmas season!
I keep hearing “the more the merrier” singing in my ears so I decided to add a few Peanut Butter Snowballs to the mix!
No Bake Peanut Butter Balls
These are super easy to make and you probably have all the ingredients; peanut butter, powdered sugar, butter and white candy melts in your baking stash.
Since you don’t need to worry about a hot oven to make these, it’s a great recipe to whip up with little ones!
How Do You Make Peanut Butter Snowballs?
Gather the following ingredients:
- Confectioner’s sugar
- Peanut Butter
Combine in a medium size bowl until well incorporated.
Shape into 1-inch balls and place on a waxed or parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Chill for 30 minutes or until firm.
Next, melt the white candy coating in a microwave safe bowl until smooth. Dip balls and place on lined cookie sheet to harden.
Note that you may end up sampling a few more when making with kids, but that’s ok because you can easily double the recipe to make up for those taste testers.
Can Natural Peanut Butter Be Used To Make No Bake Peanut Butter Balls?
Yes, natural peanut butter can be used, but make sure that the type you purchase doesn’t have oil on top or ensure that it is mixed well.
Otherwise the balls may be too soft and not hold up well.
Can You Freeze Peanut Butter Snowballs?
Yes, mix these snowballs up and place them in an airtight freezer container, ziplock or vacuum freezer bag for up to three months.
Keep this recipe in mind when you need a quick hostess gift for the days you are holiday party hoping!
Or, heck, make these when you just can’t stop adding another batch of sweets to your cookie tray!
Peanut butter paired with any type of chocolate is heavenly, you know that.
