  4. I found you on the Tasty Tuesday blog hop. I LOVE snowball cookies. My grandma makes them without fail every Christmas. It's the only time I get to have them. I actually thought about using them for this hop as well, but them I found a really pretty picture of hot chocolate and went with that insetad. Anyway, thanks for the recipe. It's getting me all excited for Christmas all over again!
