There is no winter or holiday without snow and snow. However, you will not throw these snowballs, but put them in your mouth. They are made with peppermint, delicious and a real holiday dessert.

Tara on the blog Thebutterdish she shared this wonderful recipe with her readers, and we pass it on to you. We really liked the idea. Peppermint balls will fit perfectly among small celebration cakes. They are delicious, refreshing and we think they are an ideal winter dessert.


  • 1 cup (250 ml) unsalted butter
  • ½ cups of powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 ¼ cups of multipurpose flour
  • ½ teaspoons of salt
  • ⅓ cups of chopped pecans (can also be plain or almond)
  • 20 peppermint hard candies
  • (If you want, you can also add a little baking powder)
  • ¾ cups of powdered sugar (additionally – for sprinkling)

Preheat the oven to 180C. In a large bowl, whisk the butter with an electric mixer until generous. Lightly add ½ cups of powdered sugar while mixing, then peppermint and vanilla extracts. Mix everything well – set the mixer now on the weakest.

Add flour, chopped walnuts (or almonds) and mix everything well. Put the obtained dough in the refrigerator for 20 minutes, but not more because it will become too hard and you will not be able to form balls.

From the dough, make balls with a diameter of about 2.5 cm, then arrange them on an oiled baking tray (let there be a distance of about 2 cm between them, although they will not grow much).

Bake in a preheated oven for 20 minutes until golden brown. Remove and allow to cool for 5 to 10 minutes.

Grind peppermint candies in a blender or mill into a fine powder. Pour into a bowl and leave. Pour ¾ cups of powdered sugar into another bowl.

You must first roll the balls in powdered sugar, then quickly in peppermint powder (because it will start to stick. If it starts to stick, just stir the powder with a little spoon). Arrange them on a serving plate.
