This recipe was from my mom. I would watch her as a child make these cookies and it was always around the holidays of Thanksgiving and Christmas. They simply melt in your mouth. I remember watching her add or take out an ingredient until she had it just right. I know you will love this recipe!

Snowballs are sweet, crunchy cookies with a round shape covered in powdered sugar. Chocolate chips are added to this recipe which is a nice surprise. Easy to make, they're a fun Christmas cookie.
