What Is a Kipplen?

Some of you may not know what Kipplens are, and where they originate from.
Kippens also known as snowball cookies are German cakes/cookies that resemble and taste almost just like Mexican wedding cakes.
It’s a very popular Christmas dessert, enjoyed all over the world.

Making kipplens is extremely easy. They hold their ball shape very well because the recipe doesn’t ask for any raising agents.
They are crispy on the outside and soft and cakey in the middle. So delicious!
