Hot Chocolate Snowballs

These delicious hot chocolate snowball cookies have a few surprises inside. First, they are made with hot chocolate mix, meaning you can use a plain mix or jazz things up a bit by using a flavored hot chocolate mix like peppermint.

Second, they have a bit of cream cheese mixed into the dough, giving them a great flavor and texture. I tweaked the original recipe just a bit by making the cookies larger and reducing the cooking time. I like my cookies to be tender so this worked out very well. Many thanks to Melissa's Cuisine for the recipe. Enjoy!



  • 2/3 cup butter, softened
  • 3 ounces regular cream cheese, softened
  • 2/3 cup hot chocolate mix (I used peppermint but plain works great too)
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar, plus extra for rolling
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1-3/4 cups flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and cream cheese well. The mixture should be thick but smooth. Add hot chocolate mix, powdered sugar, and vanilla.
  2. Add in salt and mix for a moment. Add in flour in half cup increments and mix until incorporated. Cover and chill for 1 hour.
  3. Roll dough into walnut size balls and place 2 inches apart on a greased cookie sheet. (I used a medium cookie scoop, which holds 1.5 Tbsp. dough)
  4. Bake at 350-f for 14 minutes, or until firm.
  5. Let the cookies cool for 2 minutes before rolling in powdered sugar. Let them cool completely on a wire rack.
