• Method

Paris-based Scot, Jill Colonna created this recipe based on her granny’s Snowballs recipe, which she enjoyed making as a youngster growing up in Scotland.

  1. Place ingredients in a large bowl and mix together with a spoon until all the flavours are well blended. If the coconut oil is solid, melt very gently for just a few seconds in the microwave.
  2. Form little balls by rolling a couple of teaspoons of the mixture at a time in the palm of your hands. Set aside on a plate or baking sheet and place in the fridge for a few minutes, then roll in the desiccated coconut.

The snowballs can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three days. They are best eaten at room temperature with your favourite cup of tea, mulled wine or festive sparkly!
