Sundays are for baking: Snowballs.

Those cookies are the cutest when it comes to taking pictures. The contrast of the white powdered sugar and the deep brown chocolate cookies…. oh my! SO pretty! Just in case you didn’t notice 🙂

I’ll tell you the story of these cookies: Last friday I was browsing through magazines at the supermarket. Yes, I am one of those girls. Always afraid one of the staff will come over and tell me I should buy a magazine instead of reading it at the store. Yes, yes, shame on me! Anyways… while flipping pages of a cooking magazine I saw some very pretty cookies and wanted to bake them immediately. I didn’t buy the magazine (all the other recipes in there were not as touching as this one!) but I started to google for „cocoa powdered sugar snowball cookies“ and found this recipe at the german cooking website

100 g semi-sweet chocolate
50 g butter (I used lactose free margarine)
60 g powdered sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 egg
1 egg yolk
1/4 teaspoon baking powder (I used a whole package of baking soda because I didn’t have any  baking powder at home)
1 table spoon cocoa powder
100 g flour
and some powdered sugar to wallow the snowballs in.


First, melt the chocolate and butter.  You can either melt them together in a pot (don’t forget to stir!!!!) or use the double-boiler method.
After chocolate and butter are melted, mix it with all the other ingredients in a big bowl. Put the (very liquid) dough in the fridge and let cool for about 2 hours!

After the two hours, pre-heat your oven to 170 ° C (very important to make the crust crack!) and form little snowballs from your dough. (Size of a wallnut) Wallow the little snowballs in powdered sugar and put it on the baking sheet. Bake for 14 minutes. And that’s it! A yummy and easy treat. And so photogenic!



Happy baking!





Hallo, ihr Lieben!

Neulich am Zeitschriftenstand fiel mir ein herrliches Gebäck-Rezept ins Auge. Schoko-schokoladige Schneebälle. Da der Rest in dem Heft mir nicht gefiel, habe ich auf den Kauf verzichtet und einfach Google gefragt. Und Google hat mir dieses Rezept rausgeschmissen. Probiert’s einfach aus, ihr erhaltet ein wunderbares, winterliches Gebäck, das einfach unglaublich lecker und dazu herrlich fotogen ist! 🙂 Viel Spaß beim Nachbacken!

  3. ooh, how adorable!

    and has anyone at a supermarket ever actually said that to you? i work in a grocery store and i never say that to anyone, or even think it! XD a lot of times it’s sort of awkward when they’re looking at magazines while waiting in line and then don’t notice that i’m ready for them and i have to get their attention somehow though XD

    i’ve bought one cute magazine of recipes- it was last year, all christmas-y cookies and treats! and i bought one little tiny magazine of brownies and bars, but haven’t tried anything from that one yet.

  4. Thanks so very much for the wonderful comment on my On the Tracks post! 🙂

    These cookies look so delicious, yummy and pretty! Who doesn’t flip through mags while in the store?….totally guilty of it too! haha
