Peanut Butter Snowballs
Peanut Butter Snowballs are a new twist on the classic snowball cookie recipe. This Christmas cookie recipe uses peanut butter in the filling and, instead of being dusted with powdered sugar, white chocolate coats the outside. Sprinkle the tops with silver sugar sprinkles if you want to go above and beyond (The sprinkles make them look super fancy). This 5 ingredient dessert recipe makes 24-30 balls, so make sure you share them. Otherwise, you may end up eating them all yourself before you know it!

Line a cookie sheet with parchment or waxed paper.
Combine 1 cup powdered sugar, butter and peanut butter in a large bowl, stirring until completely mixed and smooth.
Sprinkle the remaining powdered sugar on a clean work surface and form the dough into a log shape 12 inches long. Cut into inch pieces and roll each between your palms to make smooth balls. Place on the prepared bake sheet and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
In a medium bowl, melt the candy coating in 30 second intervals in the microwave, stirring until completely smooth. Dip the balls into the candy coating, return to the lined sheet and add sprinkles as desired while coating is still wet. Return to the refrigerator until ready to serve.
