Ingredients needed:

  • 1 1/2 cups peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup softened butter (1 stick)
  • 1 (16-ounce) package powdered (icing/confectioner's) sugar
  • 2 cups white chocolate chips or pieces
  • 1 tablespoon shortening
  • 1/2 cup shelled, unsalted peanuts (optional)
  1. You'll need two baking trays. Line 1 with foil and one with waxed paper.
  2. Combine peanut butter and butter in a large bowl until well blended. Blend in the sugar, 1/2 cup at a time, until smooth.
  3. Form the mixture into 1-inch balls and place them on the foil lined sheet. (You can dampen your hands to make it easier if the dough seems too dry). Let them set until firm (30 minutes or so).
  4. Melt the white chocolate and shortening using a double boiler over simmering (NOT boiling water). Be careful not to get any moisture in the chocolate or it will seize.

    If you prefer, you can also use the microwave for melting. Just stir every 30 seconds so you don't overheat.

  5. Dip each ball into the melted chocolate. You can use a toothpick to make it easier if you don't have a dipping fork. You can even spoon the chocolate over the balls to coat them, if needed. Place each dipped snowball on the wax paper lined tray. If you are using the peanut halves, place one on top of each snowball. Refrigerate until set, about 30 minutes. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator
