Smells Like Christmas Cookies: Chocolate Snowballs

Chocolate Snowballs
Here’s the promised Chocolate Snowball recipe. I like that these aren’t super rich or heavy…just kind of like a little ball of chocolate cake.

Cream butter, rapadura and cocoa. Add milk and eggs and stir well. Mix in baking powder, salt and vanilla. Stir in flour. Chill dough for at least two hours.

    So, you do use powdered sugar! What can you tell me about this stuff? I use organic – does that make it ok?! These look delicious – as does everything else you bake / cook and show to us. I make a lot of your recipes and my kids ask for them over and over again!!! (We had Layered Beef Enchiladas on Saturday – YUM!)

    Yeah, I use powdered sugar sometimes for things like this. I use organic too…which doesn’t make it much healthier…but at least it isn’t bleached!

    Do you have a good gingerbread cookie recipe? My 4 year old wants to make these cookies and I’ve never made them. I look forward to trying your chocolate snowball recipe! Thanks for sharing so much! (Your stromboli recipe turned out great last night for dinner!!)

    I made these cookies today, however, they came out flat. They tasted good, just not a snowball shape.

    So my kids now ask if they can pick recipes from you site, seriously :-)

    We made these today, using whole wheat pastry flour, they are WONDERFUL!
