Quick & Easy No Bake Peanut Butter Snowballs Recipe

Share

So many of our favorite family recipes start with a particular brand of soup or in this case, a jar of peanut butter.  We have been making this same No Bake Peanut Butter Snowball recipe  for as long as I can remember.  My grandmother used to make these same snowballs for our entire family every Christmas.  Gosh, she would make so many Peanut Butter Snowballs for Christmas.  I seriously don’t know how she kept up with us, lol.  Growing up my siblings and I were Jif kids, my poor grandmother we would always go bother her to fill up his spoon with Jif Peanut Butter, and she always did it with a smile, even during the holidays when she was making 100 snowballs.  She’s not with us any longer, and she is dearly missed.  However, it is awesome to see this Peanut Butter Snowball recipe along with several other of my grandmother’s recipes living on with the holiday season.  Her recipes were passed to my mother, my mother gave to me, and I will continue the tradition and do the same for my children.

  • Scoop peanut butter mixture out and begin rolling balls about 1 to 1 1.2 inches.  When you are finished rolling the peanut butter ball place it on parchment paper and repeat until all peanut butter mixture is gone.
  • Place in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes, it helps them to stay together a little better.  However, you can skip this step if you like I just prefer chilling the peanut butter balls first.

When I go to the grocery store and need peanut butter, my kids run over and grab the biggest container of Jif peanut butter they can find, just like I used to when I would help my mom grocery shop.  Gosh, I don’t remember seeing another brand of peanut butter until I started doing my grocery shopping lol.   Of course, I’ve tried different brands once I left my parents’ house, but when you grow up with Jif, you can taste the difference.  It’s just one of those things I can’t substitute, neither can my brother and sister.
