Makes 4 dozen (48)

  • 1 1/2 cups peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 box (16 oz) confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 pkg (12 oz) white chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp vegetable shorting
  • confectioners’ sugar or edible glitter for dusting
  1. In a large bowl, combine peanut butter and butter until blended; add confectioners’ sugar, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring after each addition. 
  2. Line a baking sheet with foil.  Using your hands, shape peanut butter mixture into 1″ balls.  Place balls on prepared baking sheets; chill until firm, about 1 hour. 
  3. Place white chocolate and shortening in a large microwave safe bowl.  Microwave on medium, stirring at 30 second intervals, until chocolate is melted and smooth, about 2 minutes. 
  4. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper.  Using a spoon, dip each peanut butter ball into melted chocolate, spooning chocolate over ball to coat, if necessary. 
  5. Transfer snowballs to the waxed paper-lined baking sheets.  Sprinkle tops with confectioners’ sugar or edible glitter.  Chill snowballs until set, about 30 minutes.
