Snowball cookies are one of our favourite holiday cookies and for good reason! Hidden inside these snowball cookies are chocolate kisses for the sweetest surprise. We like to call these little drops of heaven. Serve these to Santa with a tall glass of Fairlife Canada chocolate milk for double the chocolatey goodness!
