No-bake Snowball Cookies Recipe

I was introduced to no bake snowball cookies on my first date with my husband.

I’ve been in love with both the man and the cookies ever since!

Thankfully, the cookie genius behind these snowball cookies attached a recipe card to her plate of cookies at that memorable cookie get-together.

I snatched it right up. snowball cookies recipeOriginal recipe, safeguarded between the pages of my journal.

I’ll be honest with you. I’ve declared my undying loyalties to these cookies, yet this is the first time I’ve made them.

My friend is so dependable to stir up a batch of these yummy snowball cookies for each and every church event that I’ve never found the need to make them myself.

Of course, I could have just snapped a few photos of her incredibly perfect specimens of snowball cookies, but what’s the fun in that? Better to make a few dozen myself, and then devour them like it’s nobody’s business.

      Shredded coconut! Oh gosh, I’ve tried to make shredded from fresh coconut meat and it took me ages and way too much elbow grease. Enjoy that pre-packaged coconut in the baking aisle of your local grocery. Happy cookie-ing, Vanessa!

    There’s just something special about homemade cookies, especially chocolate chip cookies, so far as I’m concerned. It’s a great family activity, something even children can help with, and everyone loves eating the results.*

    I see a beautiful picture but the recipe is no where to be found!!!! Would love to make them if only I had the recipe!

    Your chocolate balls look great. When I read the recipe, it sounded like one I got from my Mum. Since my children have left home I don’t make it as much, because they used to help roll the balls. The only difference between yours and mine is that mine has more margarine. I will try yours soon as I think that would be healthier. The original recipe had 2 cups oats and 1 cup toasted muesli. Thank you for reminding how wonderful these balls are to eat.
