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!

These look so adorable! I love desserts that take minimal effort but look great.

How cute are these little treasures? At first glance, I thought truffles...yum, and peanut butter smothered in white chocolate what a wonderful combination. For a little texture, you can probably even use crunchy peanut butter or you can decorate them by rolling in chopped peanuts, dipping half in white chocolate and the other half in dark chocolate or do all of the above for a festive variety. This would make a tasty gift as well!

Quick and easy to prepare, no baking and very good to eat makes this a perfect recipe. In fact it is so easy to make that our 6yr old made them for us this afternoon with only minimal help from her teenage sister. It is also easy enough to be a great idea for this busy mom to make the next time one of the children has to take cookies or a bake to school, lol!

These look delicious. I like the combination of peanut butter and chocolate and the white chocolate looks pretty. I think I'll make some and take them to work.

These would make a great gift for my sister. She loves her peanut butter. The while chocolate candy coating would be the white almond bark, correct? You could make them fancy by melting some dark chocolate and drizzling it over the white coating. It looks so simple.

These look yummy. I think I may try them. I make my own variation of these snowballs with left over cake and frosting and it's so easy. Crumble up the cake and mix with the frosting in a bowl. Scoop small scoops onto a baking sheet and put in the freezer to firm up. Then dip in melted chocolate.

These are delicious little snowballs with a surprise peanut butter taste inside! Sprinkling them with coarse white sugar or even little candy snowflakes would make them look so pretty! Even a dusting of cocoa powder would look festive! I love recipes like this one that are delicious yet are easy enough to make with the kids! Another winner!!

These little snowballs are basically peanut butter and white chocolate truffles. With just a few ingredients and very simple instructions, these make the perfect, quick, and easy dessert! All of the comments praise the recipe and give it justice!

I love these. These are the perfect size to arrange on an assorted "cookie gift" plate. Everyone loves these cookies. I get a lot of nice comments praising them. I have even had several people ask for the recipe. Everyone else just puts them on their cookie wish list for me to make. )

I can't say enough good things about these Peanut Butter Snowballs. They are so easy to make, don't need to get out the mixer, or turn on the oven. The flavor combination of white chocolate and peanut butter is absolutely delectable. The silver sprinkles ad the perfect festive touch. They also hold up well in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Love them. I am a culinary arts teacher and this was a great recipe for my kids to make in one class period. They also loved eating and sharing them.

Funny, I was thinking the other day that it would be great if I could find a recipe for a peanut butter truffle like candy and here it is! This recipe looks amazing! And white chocolate instead of milk or dark will make it "not your average peanut butter cup" type candy. I think my neighbors will be getting a few of these this Christmas.

Not only do these look like they taste amazing they LOOK adorable and festive! I will definitely be trying these out at holiday party. From everyone else's reviews I just know it will be a hit. Thank you so much for sharing!

These look amazing! Can't wait to try them out for all of the Christmas cookie baking I've got coming up.

YUM!!!! These were so delicious. I'm not a huge fan of white chocolate so I might try them with dark chocolate the next time I make them.

These look so pretty on the plate, and taste just as good! They are so rich, you only need one to satisfy your sweet tooth :)

I thought these were fine. The peanut butter filling was SUPER rich which was a little much for me. I also wish these would be a little more solid. They didn't hold their shape for all that long after I touched them to eat them.

I think if you tried adding some crushed graham cracker or vanilla wafer crumbs to the filling it would make them more substantial, less rich, and they will hold their shape much better. Graham crackers would add less flavor to the peanut butter than the vanilla wafers. If you try this please let me know how they came out.

The peanut butter filling is really yummy. I didn't think the white chocolate coated anything (other than aesthetics).

I love the filling, but they were just too sweet for me.

If you like peanut butter, then you're going to love these!

These were incredible! They were super creamy - practically melt in your mouth.
