It takes just a handful of store cupboard ingredients to bring this Christmas treat together and everyone can get involved in rolling their own snowballs. They’re great for Christmas parties as there’s plenty to go around. What are you waiting for?! It’s snow or never....
Prep Time: 30 minutes | Cooling Time: 1 hour +
For the snowballs:
125g buttery baking spread
500g desiccated coconut
230g icing sugar
397g Carnation Fat Free Sweetened Condensed Milk
For the coating:
50g popping candy
100g Nesquik Strawberry Milkshake Powder
You will also need:
baking tray lined with non-stick baking parchment
1. Melt the buttery baking spread in a large pan over a medium heat. Once melted, remove from the heat.
2. Add the desiccated coconut, condensed milk and sugar to a large bowl and pour in the melted buttery baking spread. Give everything a good mix to fully combine.
3. Mix together the popping candy and the Nesquik and decant into a medium sized bowl. Roll the desiccated coconut mix into small balls (around the same size as a large grape) and then roll the balls in the popping candy mix.
4. Place the balls on the lined baking tray and pop in the fridge to firm up for an hour before sharing with family and friends as a special Christmas treat. Any leftovers will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
