Happy Saturday everyone! It’s almost Christmas, and I have been baking a few different kinds of Christmas cookies! I tried a new recipe this year that I absolutely LOVE. These snowball cookies are delicious and they melt in your mouth. They’re not healthy at all, but it’s the holidays and you can splurge once and a while! These are small too so eating one or two is perfect.
I found this recipe on Pinterest, and it comes from OMG Chocolate Desserts. She adapted this recipe from an original snowball cookie recipe by adding in coconut. I think the coconut was a fantastic addition! Her recipe and photos are great, I just wanted to share the recipe with you guys.
I used shredded coconut, and pulsed it a few times in the food processor to make sure it was very finely chopped. I didn’t use any coconut flour, just regular flour.
I love this recipe because they are really simple to make! Just mix everything together and throw them in the oven- the dough doesn’t even need to be chilled! They’re perfect for the winter and look like cute little snowballs! Fancy without all the work. The snow falling outside helped with my decision to add these to my Christmas cookie list.
So throw some hot chocolate on, and get to work! Christmas music might also be necessary.
Mmm I love these. So delicious. They are fantastic with coffee or tea, or hot chocolate! I have also written a Russian Tea Cookie recipe before, these cookies are very similar but the snowballs have coconut instead of walnuts in them.
Hope your weekend is going great! Throw on a Christmas movie, stir up some hot chocolate to enjoy with these snow balls. Enjoy!
