As the weather starts to grow colder, my kids begin requesting to make Butterballs. These delicious no-bake cookies are their favorite Holiday treat.
In honor of National Cookie Day, and in preparation to watch the lighting of the Rockefeller Christmas Tree, the older kids whipped up a double batch after school today.
1 pound unsalted butter
6 cups quick oats
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup plus 1 tbsp. cocoa
2 cups sugar
1 tbsp. vanilla
3/4 cup powdered sugar
- Soften butter
- Combine all ingredients, except powdered sugar, in a large bowl.
- Roll mixture into 1/4 inch balls. (Balls should hold shape firmly.)
- Roll balls in powdered sugar.
- Chill and serve.
