Peanut Butter Snowballs

- 1 lb. white candy coating, coarsely chopped
In a bowl, combine the sugar, peanut butter and butter. Shape into 1-inch balls and place on a wax paper-lined baking sheet. Chill for 30 minutes or until firm.
Meanwhile, melt the candy coating in a microwave-safe bowl. Dip balls in melted candy coating.

Dark, white or milk chocolate confectionery coating is found in the baking section of most grocery stores. It is sometimes labeled “almond bark” or “candy coating” and is often sold in bulk packages. It is the product used for dipping chocolate. A substitute for 6 oz. chocolate coating would be 1 cup (6 oz.) semisweet, dark or white chocolate chips and 1 T. shortening melted together.
