Toasted Coconut Cherry Snowballs

Sheila Illes


This is a recipe I have adapted for a little Christmas touch. My family loves coconut so it goes over well and is a nice break from so many chocolate recipes. I hope you enjoy it.

How to Make Toasted Coconut Cherry Snowballs


  1. Cream butter, sugar, egg and salt. Beat until fluffy.
    Add 1 tsp vanilla and 1 tsp coconut flavourings, mix well.
    For some reason I am unable to list the balance of the ingredients in the listings above.
  2. Slowly mix in the 2 cups of flour. Add 1/2 C coconut and 1/3 C chopped glazed cherries and mix.
  3. Scoop and roll small balls in coconut and place on ungreased cooking sheet. Bake in convection oven at 350 F for 17 - 20 minutes watching the coconut until it is just lightly toasted.
