I’m still not quite used to these 60º winter days.

Since moving to San Jose from Philadelphia, “winter” just doesn’t quite feel the same.

And I’m not exactly complaining — I definitely don’t miss walking a mile to work in below freezing temperatures!

But it’s weird going to tree lightings without a jacket and holiday parties where we spend more time out on the patio instead of near the fireplace. And the recent rains have brought on fresh, neon-green shoots of grass!

I even saw a convertible with the roof down and two people wearing flip-flops today.

The first snowfall of the season, though. Now that’s something I really miss.


So I thought I’d make my own snow with these homemade & healthy chocolate-covered snowballs.

OK OK so maybe I just wanted an excuse to make cookies!

And yes, they’re really just no-bake coconut macaroons dripped in and drizzled with some chocolate.

But they’re soooo yummy and soooo simple to make.

Ingredients

You’ll also need parchment paper.

Instructions

  1. Combine all of the ingredients except for the chocolate together in a large bowl, mashing it together with a fork. Your coconut oil should be solid (not liquid) but soft, and easy to work with (if it’s liquid, pop it in the fridge to solidify a bit).
  2. After you have a consistent “dough”, form your “snowballs” by taking about a tablespoon of the mixture and forming it into a compact ball with your hands (so be sure to wash your hands first!). Your body heat will melt the coconut oil, so try to do this as quickly as possible!
  3. After you’ve formed all of your snowballs, melt the bar of chocolate using a double boiler. If you don’t have a double boiler, just place a small oven-safe glass bowl (break up the chocolate and put it in the bowl) in a pot filled with about an inch of water, and set it on medium heat.
  4. After the chocolate has melted, dip the bottom of the snowballs in the chocolate, and place them on the parchment paper set over a plate or small cutting board (so it can easily be transferred to the fridge later).
  5. Once all of your snowballs have been dipped, add a chocolate drizzle over the top using a spoon and some wrist-flicking action (clearly, I can work on this skill a little bit!).
  6. Then, pop your chocolate-covered snowballs in the fridge to set for a couple of hours.
  7. Keep them in the fridge until they are ready to be enjoyed to keep their shape.

Last but not least, enjoy!

P.S. I have thought about adding some mint extract to these as well but haven’t experimented yet. If you’re a mint fan too and give it a try, please report back!
