Jingle Balls really are No Bake Sugar Cookie Balls. You’re going to love these delish treats around Christmas (and all year). Santa has asked for these to be left on his plate this year!
Yup! It’s that time of year! Time to start gathering recipes and getting ready to impress your family with your new baking (or NON BAKING) treats! I think that we are ALL busy enough during the Holidays so if you can find a simple, yummy treat to whip up? It’s then the perfect recipe. Jingle Balls (No Bake Sugar Cookie Balls) are just that. They don’t take long, they don’t have a HUGE list of ingredients – they are just delish and really fun to eat!
My kids really enjoyed helping me make the No Bake Sugar Cookie Balls. They also really enjoyed naming them Jingle Balls and proceeded to sing around the house “Jingle Balls” to the tune of Jingle BELLS – you knew that was coming didn’t you?
The above picture is the real color of the No Bake Sugar Cookie Balls. I made them Red and Green because I think that’s what Jingle Balls should be! NOTE: I used Red Gel Dye for the red – because red is such a hard color to make and I didn’t want to have to add the whole bottle of liquid. It worked well. I used Green Liquid Dye because I really wanted to test and see if it made a difference in the dough – it didn’t so use whatever you’d like 🙂
Another side note. No Bake Sugar Cookie Balls rolled just fine for me but they were what I would refer to as a bit soft (they rolled so they weren’t that mushy). When I make them again (oh yes I am making them again) I will probably refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes before rolling to get the perfect round shape. I refrigerated after making the balls and that’s when they were the most delish. So make sure to store these in the fridge!
