With the snowballs not only chocoholics get their favourit.
With the chocolate snowballs there is today the last recipe for Christmas cookies. After all, is soon Christmas, and most cookies are baked or eaten anyway. The one or other tasty recipe more I have this year definitely for you, but no more biscuits.
The snowballs are again a recipe of simple variety. Dissolve chocolate and butter, stir in the rest, and even the cookies are almost done. Chill, round, icing sugar, baking and ready. 😉
Those who want to can use in the recipe only whole milk or dark chocolate. Someone like it a bit bitter, the other sweet. I choose some in between. So have fun with the last cookies for 2015.
