Recently, my new friend, Isabella, and I made double chocolate snowball cookies, which are inspired by Mexican Wedding Cookies and Russian Tea Cakes. We liked these easy-to-make cookies so much that we made them twice. Once for a holiday party and once for the picnic you see in this post. These yummy cookies are filled with chocolate chips and cocoa powder, and dusted with powdered sugar on top, giving them a “snowball” effect. Keep reading to find the recipe, created by the blogger of Crazy For Crust, and you’ll find the how-to video as well…make sure to check that out!

We decided to enjoy our cookies at this beautiful beach in Eastsound, Washington, and we helped Isabella explore her interest in photography by letting her take most of the pictures for our post. All the creative ceramics are by our friend, Sharon Ho of Optimism and Co. and Felt + Ceramics, and the tea towel with the buck graphic is one of our favorites by Andrew Youngren of The Print Shop.

I really love how Sharon Ho’s ceramics are intentionally imperfect and handmade. Make sure to notice the details!

We brought this felted wool vase made by Christa Smith of the Felt + Ceramics studio in Eastsound. We filled it with some flowering weeds we found to make us a sweet setting on the wood picnic tables at the waterfront park.
