Each Christmas growing up, my mother and I would make a similar Christmas treats – Peanut Butter Balls and Pecan Butter Balls otherwise known as Snowballs, brittle, rich treats loaded up with walnuts and came in confectioners' sugar. They really pass by a ton of names from Mexico (as wedding treats) to Russia (where they're tea cakes) to Austria (search for Viennese sugar balls).

It's nothing unexpected that these treats were grown freely everywhere throughout the world, since they're so darn straightforward that anybody with a reserve of nuts, a stick of spread, and some additional time on their hands would most likely discover their way to this formula eventually.

I adored helping my mother make and heat these unique treats at Christmastime. Furthermore, presently, numerous years after the fact, I'm anticipating voyaging home for Christmas and making these Pecan Butter Balls with my mother.
