Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 24 ounces (baking) white chocolate
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter chips for drizzle (optional)


Mix powdered sugar, peanut butter, and butter in a large bowl. Once mixed into a dough-like texture, roll the dough into 1-inch balls and place on a baking sheet that is lined with parchment paper. Freeze the peanut butter balls for at least two hours. For best results, freeze overnight.

Next, in a microwave-safe bowl, heat the white chocolate in intervals of 30 seconds and stir until completely melted and smooth. Using a toothpick or other dunking tool, dip each peanut butter ball into the melted chocolate, and place back on parchment paper. Allow the chocolate to set.

Lastly, heat peanut butter chips in 30-second intervals and stir until completely melted and smooth. Drizzle over the coating of  hardened white chocolate and allow to set. Serve with elephant themed napkins and more!
