Another great no-bake holiday dessert! This Vanilla Cookie Balls Recipe is perfect for those folks that aren’t all about the chocolate. Vanilla wafers, cream cheese and vanilla bean paste formed into balls then coated with white candy and vanilla sugar!
I am proud to be partnering with Rodelle to bring you this tasty recipe!
So, I warned you that there would be many no-bake holiday desserts this season. I signed on to participate on the Rodelle 2016 Cookie Campaign right before I moved to the new house. And, the new house just happens to be at high altitude . . . 4,000 feet higher than I’m used to. While I am loving the gorgeous mountain views and snow that began in early November, my cookie creations are suffering. And I mean reeealy suffering! It has been one cookie disaster after another. That brings us back to this Vanilla Cookie Balls Recipe. After many failed attempts at a cookie recipe I said FORGET IT and went with a no-bake cookie treat!
Everybody loves a quick, easy dessert recipe. These Vanilla Cookie Balls are a nice change from the usual holiday flavors and overabundance of chocolate.
I used one of my favorite ingredients, Rodelle Vanilla Paste to amp up the vanilla flavor. It adds the vanilla taste as well as flecks of vanilla beans.
Serve these beauties at your next party or holiday get together. They are sure to be a hit!
