Coconut Snow Balls

Coconut Snow Balls

These adorable little coconut snow balls are one of the quickest things I have ever made. Containing only 3 ingredients, they’re ready for serving within 10 minutes! And yes, they taste as good as they look.

These coconut balls also go by the names coconut laddus or coconut mithai. They’re fairly common; you must have come across them by one of these names. I like to call them coconut snow balls because…well because it sounds cuter 😛

You can try different colors each time, especially if there is a party theme to match! This (picture below) is one of the times I chose greens, yellows, and blues, and sent these coconut snow balls over to a friend.

TIPS TO GET PERFECT COCONUT SNOW BALLS

1) Add just a little food color. Light colored coconut snow balls look best.

2) Weight each ball before shaping it so they all look exactly the same.

3) If the dough seems very soft, add a little more desiccated coconut.

4) If the dough seems hard, add a little more condensed milk.

Go ahead, try them out! It does not get easier than this 🙂
