Peanut Butter Snowballs Recipe

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!).

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 pound white chocolate candy coating or almond bark
  • sugar sprinkles, optional garnish


  1. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine powdered sugar, peanut butter and butter; mix well.
  2. Line a large cookie sheet with wax paper and shape dough into 1" balls; place balls on wax paper.
  3. Chill dough balls in the fridge for about 30 minutes or until firm.
  4. In another medium-sized bowl, melt candy coating according to directions on package (I usually microwave mine for 30-second intervals, stirring each time, until completely melted and smooth).
  5. Dip balls and place on wax paper. If you want, garnish tops with sugar sprinkles.
  6. Place balls back into the fridge to set up.
