Friday Book Projects

The book we chose to read this week was The Biggest Snowball Ever by John Rogan. Our project was a special one for my kids. They love to cook so we made a recipe that Aaron once made at school. No Bake Snowballs!

Here's what you will need:
2/3 cup butter or margarine-softened
1/2 cup sugar
1T. water
3T. cocoa
1/2 t. vanilla
2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup powdered sugar

Mix the butter and sugar together. Add the water, cocoa, and vanilla. mix well. Add rolled oats, mix well. Roll about 1 tsp. of the mix in your hands to form a ball. Roll in powdered sugar.

Ours turned out a little like dirty snowballs because we did not put enough powdered sugar on them. But the kids had fun making them and that's all that matters:) Enjoy!

  1. great job! we love our weekly book challenges too! books are great!

  2. Those look like fun!
    My kids love that book.
    I think there is another one similar...

  3. Yummy!

    We read "The Snow Speaks" by Nancy White Carlstrom.

    The project we did was make a snow background on paper with cotton balls as snowmen.

    I think the girls just wanted to play with the glitter paint. Which would have been okay, but the 2 year old keep screaming that she had glitter on her hands. Oh Boy!

  4. I love this recipe. I think we will try this today. Thanks for sharing.

  5. We have that book as one of our 25 books of Christmas. I thought it was cute!

  6. These super yummy and easy! Thanks for sharing :)
