Mum’s no-bake chocolate snowballs are delicious easy to make chocolate balls made from just 6 ingredients. This is a fantastic holiday recipe kids will love!
Folks, these tasty no-bake chocolate snow balls prove that Christmas baking doesn’t have to be complicated or time consuming and when I said in the introduction that this is a recipe kids will love, I meant it.
How do I know?
Well you see, years ago as a kid I loved baking these with my mum. They were a Christmas favourite. Plus as a child I was able to get chocolate all over my hands and lick it off!
Roll forward X number of years and I’m still licking the chocolate off my fingers but now as an adult. Ha ha!
I have many great baking memories from when I was a child.
Together with my mum and my little brother we baked scones, flapjacks, rock buns and so many more recipes I can’t remember.
Then when Christmas came around we rolled these chocolate snow balls together. Great times!
My mum made and cooked everything from scratch. She still does. Now you see where I get my enthusiasm for cooking from?
You should have seen the birthday cakes she made. There were huge chocolate cake castles as well as thomas the tank engine shaped cakes too!
The Christmas cake was a large traditional affair where the fruit was soaked in booze for weeks before. Then it was covered in a thick layer of marzapan icing and then another layer of thick white icing.
I usually made myself feel ill by eating too much of the icing. 😆
So folks I know we’re all exceptionally busy getting ready for the big day but if you can find yourself just 20 minutes you can easily make these. Then they take just 10 minutes to set.
You could make a batch of these 10 no-bake snow balls and take them into work the next day?
However you decide to enjoy your snow balls, I know you’ll just love them!
Big thanks to mum for sending me your recipe and letting me post it here for everyone to enjoy!
