Snowball cookies


Snowball cookiesI love cookies, walnuts, chocolate and baking, so these cookies were kind of favourite thing to do during holidays. They’re easy to assemble, pretty cute and need only few ingredients.
If you keep them in an airtight container they last more than 2 weeks.

Anyhow they’re a little bit tricky to bake. But once you have tasted these beauties you realize any effort is worth it.

Snowball cookies make a very nice homemade gift for holidays. Wrap them up in a nice way and share love and sweetness with your dearest persons.
