Amaretto Snowballs

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Cookin-jo

These snowballs have become a tradition in my home. They're just a bit different and very easy to make.


I made these to put on my cookie tray. I thought they were really good, but I couldn't taste the amaretta at all. I might try to add just a tad more next year.
