Grinch Snowball Cookies seemed to be a different type of recipe than what I have made before. When I decided to make these, I knew the kids would love them and enjoy helping me make them. The kids have always loved the movie The Grinch. When I told them that I was making them, they were happy to be able to help.
Not only did the kids get excited when they found out that they were helping me, but they also had a great time making them and we even had the milk on standby. You can never have cookies around me without milk. 😉 At least for me, I wont eat cookies or donuts without the milk. I guess the kids have learned that from me. Not a bad thing is it?
Who is ready for Christmas? Normally I am all ready to go and everything bought for others. This year, I am very behind with buying gifts. Making Goodies and Treats is no different for me this year. I am behind on that as well. I added these Grinch Snowball Cookies to the list of things to make this Holiday Season.
I have a recipe card below for you to print off. No more having to write the whole recipe out.
