Traditional Newfoundland Snowballs
Snowballs are small round coconut covered chocolate balls, they are usually made at Christmas time in most Newfoundland homes. These chocolate delights are so good it's hard to only have one, most people like them frozen to eat because of its texture.
This recipe I have been making for years and they make a delightful Christmas gifts for your family or friends if you are looking for a gift ideas.
Mix all the ingredients together then put in the fridge, until ready to roll.
I love this stage because this next step is to roll them in coconut and then freeze them until you are ready to eat them. Mmmm

This is a fun recipe to make with your kids because they can make little snowman from the cookie dough.
Also you can wrap the dough around a marshmallow and cut them in half and they also makes a delicious cookie. But this recipe is our favourite cookie and Christmas time, I love them frozen.
