Chocolate Chip Snowball Cookies

Chocolate chip snowball cookies, Russian tea cakes, Mexican wedding cookies… whatever you call them they are a classic, addictive, and easy to make cookie! You don’t even need eggs.

Snowball cookies are traditionally made with chopped nuts like pecans or walnuts but in this recipe, I used chocolate chips.

YAY for chocolate!

How to make Chocolate Chip Snowball Cookies

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F
  2. In a medium bowl beat butter with a hand or stand mixer until the butter has a creamy texture
  3. Pour in the powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and salt with the creamy butter and mix until well-combined
  4. Now gradually add the flour until the mix becomes dough-like
  5. Pour in the chocolate chips and use a spatula to mix them into the cookie dough
  6. With clean hands roll the dough into balls with your hands and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Set aside a bowl of powdered sugar.
  7. Bake for 10 minutes or until the cookies are light golden brown on the bottom
  8. Let the cookies cool for about one minute (you want them to still be a little warm for the powdered sugar to stick), then roll them in the powdered sugar you set aside and let them cool down for a few more minutes.
  9. Sift more powdered sugar on top and serve!

Tip – Rotate the cookie sheet halfway through baking to get an even color on the cookies.

Can you freeze these cookies?

Yes, you can freeze chocolate chip snowball cookies for up to a month. You may need to re-dust with powdered sugar once thawed.
