No-Bake Fudge Snow Balls

There’s much to love about these no-bake cookies! They are healthy, dairy-free, egg-free, gluten-free, vegan, and they taste great too. More no bake desserts I love are No Bake Peanut Butter Pie, No Bake Strawberries and Cream Crepe Cake, and No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies. 

I’m a pretty lazy baker so I love cookies or any desserts that require minimal effort. That’s why I love making these edible cookie dough balls. The only appliance required is a food processor. I love my mini 4-cup food processor (affil link). If you don’t have one you can also used already ground almonds.

They come out moist and chewy, almost like a chocolate cookie dough ball. Even though the points are for dough ball, the balls are dense and you don’t need much to satisfy the sweet tooth. Try pairing one with a cup of coffee or Chai tea for dessert.

Helpful tips for these no-bake fudge balls:

  • If the dough is too sticky to roll, keeping your hands damp with a little  bit of water on your hands to roll them help to keep the shape more easily. I like to keep my sink running while I’m doing this step.
  • You can substitute almonds with another nut like cashew or walnuts if you’d like.
  • You can substitute dates with prunes.
  • And if you’re watching sugar intake, you can opt out the powder sugar or even sub with cocoa powder for a more bitter chocolatey treat.
  • You can even substitute in protein powder for cacao for added protein.

Note: Points and nutrition values may vary for these substitutions.
