For all those last minute candy cravings and all the coconut lovers out there, these quick simple treats really hit the spot. Festive enough for the holiday table and to give away as gifts, but also casual enough as hot summer day treats at your next garden party.
Easy enough to make with the kids, since there’s no baking involved just let them roll up their sleeves and get their little hands dirty making their very own candy balls.
I have a thing for coconut nectar lately, I love it drizzled over my breakfast oatmeal bowl, in my coffee and off course to sweeten desserts. It is not quite as sweet as agave or maple syrup however, so If your sweet tooth is off the wall then you might just want to use maple instead. No judgement 😉
You could also choose to use toasted coconut in this recipe, just know they will be more golden in color and you might need a little extra cream for the dough to come together well.
Vegan, gluten-free, made without dates and as healthy as desserts can be. Try not to eat them all standing up in front of the refrigerator, I heard that happened before teeheehee
These are the best coconut snowballs ever!

No Bake Coconut Snowballs
Easy, no bake coconut snowballs recipe made with only 3 ingredients: raw coconut, coconut cream and nectar (the nuts are optional).
In a small bowl combine 1 cup of coconut, maple syrup and coconut cream until a soft dough forms. Use your hands and shape the dough into 9 golf ball size balls. (If you feel the dough is too dry feel free to add an extra drizzle of coconut cream)
Push an almond or hazelnut into the center of each coconut ball and shape it back into a round sphere. Toss into the remaining coconut until coated all over. Set on a plate and refrigerate for a couple of hours before serving.
