Fast and easy no-bake Christmas Snowballs, great as Christmas edible gifts and Christmas treats.

Back in the kitchen for more Christmas Baking, this time it’s these no-bake Christmas Snowballs. I love them because they are ridiculously easy and fast to make. If you were looking for a Christmas baking recipe for kids, I would try these Christmas Snowballs. They’ll love getting their hands dirty rolling balls of dough, and then coating them with coconut and chocolate.

This Christmas Snowball recipe is not to be confused with Snowball cookies, or Russian Tea Cakes. Those typically have pecan nuts in them, they are coated in icing sugar and then baked. This snowball recipe needs no oven. In fact, you could whip these together in about 15 minutes.

You could serve these Christmas Snowballs as snacks on the Christmas table, or bundle them up with other Christmas goodies and give them to friends and family as edible Christmas gifts.
