The Biggest Snowball


This week for our stART project we have been reading The Biggest Snowball Ever! by John Rogan. When I requested this book from the Library I had no idea this was Christmas related. However, I have a little girl obsessed with Christmas, so it worked fine for us.
This book is a lot of fun to read and Bekah wanted to keep looking at the silly illustrations. We decided to make no-bake snowball cookies to go along with our book. Here's the recipe:

Here's what you will need:
2/3 cup butter -softened
1/2 cup sugar
1T. water
3T. cocoa
1/2 t. vanilla
2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup powdered sugar

Mix the butter and sugar together. Add the water, cocoa, and vanilla. mix well. Add rolled oats, mix well. Roll about 1 tsp. of the mix in your hands to form a ball. Roll in powdered sugar.

Mixing the butter and sugar.

Stirring in the oats.

My official "taste tester".

Bekah's snowball cookie!
