Coco Chocolate Snowballs
Coconut is a great chocolate filling and super healthy. Desiccated coconut is an ideal source of healthy fat that contains no cholesterol. It is a source of selenium, fiber, copper, and manganese.
The healthy fats in the coconut balance the sweetness of the chocolate so that these make for a satisfying sweet treat without raising your blood sugars too high and leave you craving more.
Hope you enjoy your festive chocolate snowballs!
