Beginning cooks can make snowballs with little supervision. No knives or ovens are needed as long as the pecans are already chopped.

Oxmoor House AUGUST 2008

  • Yield: Makes about 28 cookies (serving size: 1 cookie)
  • Prep time:25 Minutes


  • 2 1/4 cups chocolate sandwich cookie crumbs (we used crumbs made from Oreo cookies)
  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 3/4 cup sifted powdered sugar
  • 1/3 cup sweetened flaked coconut (optional)
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup strawberry preserves
  • 3/4 cup sifted powdered sugar


1. Combine cookie crumbs, pecans, 3/4 cup powdered sugar, and coconut, if you'd like, in a large bowl; add corn syrup and preserves. Stir until well blended.

2. Shape mixture into 1-inch balls, using 1 level tablespoon of mixture for each. Roll balls in 3/4 cup powdered sugar. Roll each ball again so it'll be coated very well. Store cookies in an airtight container up to 1 week.
