In our house, the homemade treats that go over the best with every family member are always the themed ones that have a bit of novelty. That’s especially true around Christmas, since there are so many fantastic baked and sweet holiday options you can get creative with! We recently tried a friend’s homemade snowball cookies and we’ve been kind of fixated on the idea of making snowball inspired treats of all kinds ever since.
Just in case you’re as taken with the idea of making snowball treats this Christmas season as we were, if not more, here are 15 of the best ideas and tutorials that we’ve come across so far in our search for inspiration!
1. Vietnamese snowball cakes
These delicious cakes that originally hail from Vietnam are amazing because they’re a unique experience in colour, taste, and texture! We love the way Runaway Rice so simply outlines how to make the rice paste that forms the cake, as well as how to mix the filling, put in in the centre, and coat the cake in shredded coconut, which is really what drives the snowball theme home.
2. Newfoundland snowballs
Are you absolutely intrigued by the idea of making something covered in shredded coconut because you love the taste but you also adore how much like snow it really looks, but you’re also a bit more of a chocolate lover than anything else? In that case, we’d absolutely suggest taking a look at how Rock Recipes made these delicious balls that are called Newfoundland snowballs. They’re Canadian!
3. Pink snowball cakes
Maybe the texture is enough for you when it comes to the snowball theme and so long as that looks awesome, you’re open to getting creative with the colour? In that case, we have a feeling you’ll get a total kick out of the way Yudhika Yumyum made these delicious Indian cakes that have a stunning pink colour to them on the outside. They’re sweet without being too sweet like some cookies and cakes!
4. Lemon coconut snowball cake
What if you think you’d rather make one giant snowball rather than a batch of treats that look like a whole bunch of little snowballs? Then we think you’re going to get a huge kick out of the way Sugar Hero made a large snowball cake! Inside, it tastes like lemon and that complements the coconut covered outside just perfectly for a light, refreshing taste.
