Dietician Susie Burrell has created this delicious Snowball recipe which is a little less heavy and makes the most of delicious and nutritious peanut butter.
“Peanuts help to sustain your energy supply and boost your immune system, so adding these to any recipe will provide multiple benefits to your ravenous guests come lunchtime on Christmas Day” explains Susie.
Ingredients (makes 14 snowballs)
Cooking time 1.5 hours
1 cup peanuts, roughly chopped
1 cup medjool dates, pitted
1 cup desiccated coconut
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup almond meal
300g white chocolate melts
1 tbsp sprinkles, if desired
- Place the peanut butter, peanuts, dates, coconut, cocoa, almond meal and a sprinkle of salt in a food processor and blitz until well combined.
- Using damp hands, roll the mixture into 14 balls (roughly dessert-spoon size). Place in the freezer for 1 hour to firm.
- Meanwhile, place the white chocolate in a small microwave-safe bowl and melt at 30 second intervals. Stir chocolate in between intervals or until melted and smooth.
- Working one ball at a time, place the ball on a skewer and dip the ball into the melted chocolate. Remove from the skewer and place on a lined tray. Repeat with all remaining snowballs and drizzle over any remaining white chocolate. Sprinkle over a small amount of sprinkles. Return to the freezer for 15 minutes or until chocolate is set.
