Reader recipe Snowballs
NOTE: This recipe has not been checked or tested by The Canadian Living Test Kitchen.


For Christmas, these little snowballs are wonderful. I remember my mother making these from the time I was very, very little, and that was quite some time ago. To keep the recipe the way I remember it, I use a liquid measure for everything, just the way Mom did it.
