Are you dreaming of a white Christmas? Even if there is no snow outside you can have a white Christmas inside with these little coconut snowballs. Just four ingredients create a fun, healthy treat.
If you’re looking for a last minute holiday treat that you can make in minutes I’ve got you covered!
These coconut snowballs only have four ingredients. And they taste like peppermint.
All it takes is about five minutes of mixing, melting and pouring. Then form the mixture into balls once it has cooled.
I like to add these to my kids’ lunches. I make sure they are getting healthy fat. They love having a little treat with their meal.
Coconut snowballs would also make great finger food for a holiday party. Set a tray out for guests and watch them disappear!
You can use cane sugar or powdered cane sugar (simply blend cane sugar in a high speed blender until powdered) to make coconut snowballs. The flavor is the same. Using powdered sugar creates a smoother texture.
Let it snow.
Somehow we don’t have snow yet in Michigan this year! I’m not sure if we’ll end up with a white Christmas. But we can make it white with our own snow!
