Now I am a huge fan of anything rolled in powdered sugar. It seems to take the cookie to that next level. These Peppermint Snowballs are the perfect holiday twist on a classic cookie! They are packed with delicious peppermint flavor and just the right amount of crunch, these cookies are a must make for all your holiday baking! They are the perfect blend of delicious minty candy canes and cookies, rolled in powdered sugar and ready to be devoured. I love all kinds of snowballs, but there’s something about Peppermint Snowballs that just screams Christmas!
