These coconut snowballs. Are. Delicious. That could be my whole post. Seriously. I found the recipe on the back of Nutiva's Coconut Oil. I whipped up a batch thinking I would probably be eating the whole batch by myself. I was seriously wrong. My whole family loved them. I kept them in the freezer, and I caught the kids and hubby reaching into the freezer time and time again. How many did I get? Only a couple. I guess it's time to make more :)
1 cup Nutiva Organic Coconut Oil
6 Tbsp. honey (I used raw, local honey)
1 pinch sea salt
1½ cups unsweetened coconut (I used ½ shredded and ½ flakes)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2-4 drops peppermint oil
1 cup Nutiva Organic Hempseed
Mix first 6 ingredients together. Form into 1 inch balls*, then roll in hempseed. Chill in freezer** and serve cold. Enjoy!
*Depending on the temperature of your coconut oil, you may need to chill the mixture for a minute before forming them into balls.
**I placed the snowballs on a glass dish lined with parchment paper.
