These snowballs melt in your mouth……

What a great treat when you need a easy treat. With  Christmas just around the bend these are a great starter for the season and freeze well to save for the holidays if you can keep them hid till then.  I admit to labelling ice cream pails of baking as “Zucchini” to keep my boys from snitching from the freezer.

To make these use the Plastic bowl and cookie whips.

  • 4 cups rolled oats
  • 1 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup margarine
  • 3/4 tsp. instant coffee mixed in 1 tbsp. hot water
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 oz square unsweetened chocolate grated fine
  • Coconut approx 1/2 cup for rolling

Mix together the first 4 ingredients till well blended then add the coffee, vanilla and chocolate.  Mix till blended.  Shape into small balls and roll in dish of coconut. Refrigerate for 2 hours to firm, package and store in fridge or freeze till needed
