A perfect holiday treat! The pepperminty coolness of these pretty little coconut balls make them a wonderful party contribution or holiday gift. This recipe is a simpler version of a recipe in my raw book. The raw recipe begins with a whole fresh coconut. This one uses dried flaked or shredded coconut. Simple, beautiful and tasty- just what we need at the holidays!
3 Tbsp. coconut oil
1/3 cup honey
1/8 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. peppermint extract
Add all ingredients to a food processor and process until mixture begins to form a ball (check that it holds together when pinched). Use a small cookie scoop or a teaspoon to shape into little snowballs. Refrigerate. Best served directly from the refrigerator.
Optional: Hidden treats– Tuck a chocolate chip into each snowball as you form it.
Optional Chocolate Topping: This is my lazy method (instead of melting in a pot)- Put about 2 Tbsp. chocolate chips in a food storage bag and place in a Pyrex pitcher of very hot water. After the chips melt, snip a small tip of the bag and squeeze a small stream of chocolate onto the tops of the snowballs.
