Chocolate Covered Snowballs

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!
