Reviews forChocolate Snowballs
"Family loved this recipe!"
"I ran the chocolate chips & nuts (used walnuts) through the blender to finely chop before adding them to the dough. Mine were done baking in <12 min. I used 2 c flour & had no problems. Snowball cookies are supposed to be a bit on the dry/powdery side. Excellent recipe! Thanks!bce1965, you can use either, but I prefer semi-sweet to help counter the sweetness of the cookie dough."
"Do you use milk chocolate chips or semi sweet chips. Thank you!"
"These came out great! I saw after the fact that some reviewers decreased the flour, but mine came out just fine with the amount listed. For nuts I used freshly toasted, chopped almonds. I omitted the chocolate chips and instead dipped half the batch in white chocolate, half in dark chocolate. Super yum!"
"Just made these for my son-in-law he likes simple cookies will def make them again The only thing I changes after reading reviews I use about 1 1/2 cups of flour insead of the 2 that's called for"
"Very good, a little on the dry side"
"I'm sorry but whoever said these were dry and tasteless clearly did something wrong. These were awesome!!"
"Discovered this recipe last year and it's fantastic. The best snowball recipe ever! Love the chocolate chips in them."
