Hot Chocolate Snowballs

I've been in a cookie mood lately...I did make smore cookies last week but I froze half of them for my brother in laws. So what we had left were gone pretty quick! I'm meeting with some friends tomorrow and decided I wanted to make some cookies for them. I of course couldn't decide what kind, so I checked my Tasty Tuesday's posts and decided on this one! It was definitely a good choice and I hope they enjoy them as well! These came together very quick!

Hot Chocolate Snowballs-shared from Alli'n'son
2/3 cup butter, softened
3 oz cream cheese, softened
2/3 cup hot chocolate(I used Swiss Miss)
1/3 cup powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 3/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup finely chopped pecans(omitted)
additional powdered sugar for rolling

Cream together butter, cream cheese, hot choc mix, and powdered sugar until smooth. Add in vanilla and beat. Sift together salt and flour, slowly incorporate into choc. mix until well combined. Beat in pecans if using.

Place dough in fridge and chill for 1 hr. Roll dough into 1 inch balls and place 1 inche apart on cookie sheet. Bake for 15-18 mins at 350 degrees or until firm. Remove from oven and cool slightly. Roll in sugar while still warm.

**These were really good...they reminded me of chocolate cheesecake cookies and I'm sure it would be even better if I used all 3 oz of cream cheese(I had 2 oz to use up and didn't want to open another pkg). They melted in your mouth and were soft! TASTY!
