Peanut Butter Snowballs

My sister is hilarious. It's no secret that her claim to fame isn't in the kitchen and that she'd rather buy it than make it. Auntie Takeout as we call her is no slouch about making suggestions although she'll do it in a diplomatic way. This time, AT sent both Psychgrad and I this link knowing that we'd both be very interested to see it.

As I was browsing through some of the recipes today's post was quick and easy and there are lots of peanut butter lovers in our family. What can it hurt, right? These Peanut Butter Snowballs are a no bake confectionary.

1 cup powdered milk (I used skim milk powder)
1 cup peanut butter (I used light peanut butter)
1/2 cup honey
1 cup raisins
2 cups coconut (I used a combination of unsweetened and sweetened)

Put powdered milk, peanut butter and honey in a large bowl. Add raisins and squeeze about a tablespoon full to shape into little balls. Roll in coconut. Freeze for 10minutes. Serve.

This recipe is a fun one for kids to make. I only had white mini cups but if you have something more festive they can be rock stars in no time.

Going to a cookie exchange and don't have alot of time - this is it!!! 10 minutes and you're done. StumbleUpon

These sound delicious! A nice change from the traditional rum balls. And very festive indeed.

That does sound really simple and like a fun one for kids! I do love peanut butter balls. Hard to find peanut butter in France though.
