Healthy Chocolate-Covered Snowballs (a.k.a. No-Bake Coconut Macaroons)

These Chocolate-Covered Snowballs are as healthy as they are simple to make and delicious! Perfect for bringing to parties or enjoying at home by the fire with a mug of cocoa.

Ingredients

Scale

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.
