Boules de neige, or ‘snowballs’, are little balls of almond and hazelnut meringue rolled in snowy white sugar and baked into the most delectable crisp sweet treat. Offer these as a petit four, after Christmas dinner, or package them into a pretty box or cellophane bag as a gift. You can buy pretty little paper cases designed for confectionery in a variety of colours, making the snowballs seem even more special.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1/4 cup ground almonds
1/4 cup ground hazelnuts
120g icing sugar, sifted, plus extra to dust
1 egg white

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Combine the ground nuts, sugar and egg white in a large bowl and mix to form a firm paste, which can be rolled in the hand.
  3. Divide the mixture into pieces the size of large hazelnuts. Roll each ball in sifted icing sugar to coat thickly. Arrange on the prepared tray and bake for about 10 minutes, until well puffed.
  4. Dust with icing sugar if liked. Cool and transfer to paper cases to serve. Store in an airtight container.
