Cherry Almond Chocolate Snowball Cookie Recipe

 Cherry almond chocolate snowball cookies is my favorite cookie! The chocolate, cherry and green cherry pairing are perfect together for the holiday!




Using both green and red maraschino cherries makes this the most festive cookie on a Holiday tray! Kind of a shortbread cookie with chocolate and cherries combined. Very addicting! Crunchy, buttery just like shortbread. I think every cookie tray looks festive with red and green cookies. This was the perfect solution to making that pretty cookie stand out on the plate. Using the powdered sugar really made them pop!




Rich buttery cookies are my favorite on any Holiday cookie tray. Through the years we were very fond of chocolate with maraschino cherries in combination. This year I thought lets do some with both green and red and it worked! Of course they still flew off the plate and I always have to make a double batch! I usually have to hide these if I make them too soon there is no way to keep them from being eaten!




The buttery deliciousness just oozes out of these. I just can't wait to eat them before they even cool off! Make sure you add these to your list of cookies for Santa!
