We are always looking for wintery and snowy treats for the chalets and here is a truffle perfect for winter and Christmas time. They are ridiculously easy – leave them in the freezer until you need them. They are, of course, incredibly sweet but that’s exactly why they’re a treat and not something you’d devour every day.


Quantity Ingredient
115g white chocolate
100g desiccated coconut
100g full-fat cream cheese
70g icing sugar
extra desiccated coconut, for coating


  1. Melt the white chocolate in a bowl over a pan of boiling water or on a low setting in the microwave.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix together. Chill slightly if needed and, using wet hands, roll into little balls (these are rich, so smaller is better).
  3. Roll the little snowballs in extra desiccated coconut to coat completely.
  4. Chill for at least 4 hours then store in the fridge, or freeze and only remove about 20 minutes before serving.


  • This recipe is vegetarian, gluten-free and nut-free.

What the testers say

  • NAOMI HULME – ‘We made these in the chalets at Christmas time – success by all.’

    CATHERINE AND MATTHEW SELLS – ‘We all loved these snowballs (particularly licking the bowl and spoon) and they’ll be joining the peppermint creams in gift boxes for Christmas.’

    MARGARET LEE – ‘It really is lovely to spoil friends with homemade treats and these brilliant little snowballs finished off the meal perfectly. Enjoyed by everyone – even those who thought they were too full!’


  • Add a kick with a splash of white rum or Malibu but make sure you add extra coconut and icing sugar too, so the mixture isn’t too wet.
