Easy Snowball Cookie Recipe

Christmas snowball cookies are traditional snowball cookies made without nuts. The cookies are loaded with mini chocolate chips and mint extract, colored bright green for visual effect, and coated in powdered sugar.

 In a large bowl beat the butter and powdered sugar until fluffy. Mix in the flour, salt, and mint extract just until combined.

Add in the food coloring gel. Stir in mini chocolate chips.

Scoop out one tablespoon of dough at a time and form into balls (about 1 to ½ tablespoon size). Place balls on the prepared cookie sheet.

Cover and refrigerate the dough for an hour. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Bake cookies for 8 to 9 minutes.

While cookies are still warm gently dip them lightly in the powdered sugar and set aside. Let cookies cool completely.

Once cooled, roll them in powdered sugar again. A few green spots peeking through here and there.
