Peanut Butter Snowballs Recipe

It's not the holidays without some homemade candy. But I always get so intimidated by homemade candy, so instead, I make these homemade truffles, that are a hit every time. They taste like homemade candy but are a fourth of the work. You will love these.

It has been so hard for me to get back into a regular routine after Christmas. I just want to stay in my pajamas all day, watch Christmas movies, and drink hot cocoa.

Instead I am trying to clean up the mess leftover from Christmas and prepare for the next party: New Years.

I love making fudge and little candies for our New Years Eve party and these little snowballs are always a big hit (plus, they are incredibly simple to make).

how to properly dip your truffles in chocolate

-First things first. Your truffles have to be frozen. If they are not frozen, they will be mis-shaped, and they will fall apart in the warm white chocolate.

Then your white chocolate will have truffle smears in it. I have learned from personal experience.

-Get your white chocolate. I used Hershey’s white chocolate chips, but you could also use a bark.

I microwaved mine for 30 second intervals, stirring each time, until smooth.

Don’t let any moisture get into your melted white chocolate or it will get a weird texture, and won’t work for dipping.

-For dipping, one of our tricks is to use a plastic fork and break off the middle tines. Just leaving the two on each end. It kind of looks like a hand doing a rock on sign.

-Drop the frozen ball into the white chocolate and then carefully lift out with the fork invention, tapping the side of the bowl to let the excess chocolate drip off.

-Set them on a cookie sheet covered in wax paper. Sprinkle on the peppermint candy and let set up.

what could i use instead of peanut butter?

-Almond butter
-Cashew butter
-Oreo’s – blended
-Crunchy peanut butter
