I used a Vollrath 47157 cookie scoop to keep all my cookies the same size and shape.

To add snowflakes simply melt white chocolate wafers carefully in the microwave. Place melted chocolate in a regular ziplok baggie. Cut a tiny hole cut out of one corner of the baggie and use it to draw a snowflake on the top of each cookie. Here’s a quick video to show you how to make them:

This recipe makes a huge batch, but they freeze really well, so they’re perfect for making ahead. We’ve got our cookies all made and will be giving them out to the kids teachers for Christmas. Yay for getting one more thing crossed off the holiday to-do list!

    The recipes insrtuctions says to dip half the ball in sugar but the ingredients asks for2 1/4 cups. How much of that is for the recipe and how much to set aside for dipping. Would love to make these today.

    I made these cookies for Christmas presents for my son and nephews. I got the feeling their parents were a little jealous. These are delicious cookies. I did not make the white chocolate snow flake as I wasn’t sure how they would package with the design on it. However, there is a lot of extra batter so I will try it for the stay at home cookies! Thank you for sharing this very delicious recipe!
