Recipe Ingredients:
  • 3/4 cup M&M’S Milk Chocolate, divided
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Pinch ground cloves
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup icing sugar
  • 2 tbsp molasses
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 2 oz white chocolate candy melts
  • 1 tsp edible glitter
Directions:

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes (+ 2 hours standing time)

  1. Chop half of the M&M’S White Chocolate Pretzel Snowballs; set aside.
  2. Whisk together flour, ginger, cinnamon, salt and cloves; set aside.
  3. Using electric mixer, beat butter, icing sugar and molasses until blended; beat in vanilla. Stir in flour mixture and almond flour until combined. Stir in chopped M&M’S White Chocolate Pretzel Snowballs. Refrigerate dough for 1 hour.
  4. Preheat oven to 350°F. Divide dough into 12 portions. Roll each portion into ball; transfer to parchment paper–lined cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until set and lightly golden. Let cool completely.
  5. Meanwhile, in microwavable bowl, microwave white chocolate candy melts, stirring every 30 seconds, for about 1 minute or until melted. Using 2 forks, dip each cookie into melted candy melts (or drizzle melted candy melts over cookies).
  6. Place on parchment paper–lined baking tray. Garnish with remaining M&M’s White Chocolate Pretzel Snowballs and edible glitter. Let stand for 30 to 60 minutes or until chocolate is set and hardened.

Tip: As a variation, roll and coat snowball cookies in icing sugar and chopped M&M’S while they are still warm.
