Pink Snow Balls

Mike Chetty


These delicious decadent snow balls are cake like treats,coated in pink coconut I'm unsure of the origin's of this Pretty in Pink Treat. They resemble whoopie pies: Snow balls are neither a cookie or a pie. They have a soft cake like texture but can be moulded and shaped like scones.
