The previous night chaos hit our little sleepy country town, snow!! Not only snow but rain and freezing temperatures, creating ice rink conditions by morning. What happened was this beautiful angelic like snow fell for a couple of hours covering everything in a stunning white fluffy blanket, followed by slow and steady rain throughout the night combined with freezing temperatures and yes an instant ice rink in the driveway.
Anyhow these snowballs were obviously inspired by the snow mainly because even though I live in the UK, being based in the south we very seldom get any snow so it falls it really is a big deal. Think roads closures, food stockpiling and downright chaos.
So, what are snowballs? Basically they taste like raw vanilla cookie dough balls – maybe I should have named them snoughballs ??!! Made with dried mulberries which add a perfect balance of caramel sweetness without overpowering the delicate vanilla flavour.
With just a few simple ingredients, they are really quick to make up and the kids just love them, this I know because my cousin’s 2 year old daughter ate a ton of them when they popped over for a cuppa tea.
- Combine all the ingredients, except for the desiccated coconut in a food processor and blend until well mixed and sticky (about 1-2min)
- Roll into balls, then roll in coconut.
- Refrigerate in hot weather.
