The Best Ever Coconut Snowballs. If you have not tried and made these coconut snowballs at home, then for sure you’re missing out! Do it now!
How does one describe The Best Ever Snowballs?
Let’s try this for starters:
A snowball is a spherical object made from snow, usually created by scooping snow with the hands and pressing the snow together to compact it into a ball. Snowballs are often used in games such as snowball fights.
I am for sure NOT talking about that type of Snowballs, although it’s fun to play in the snow on a winters day, today we are looking at the most delicious and luxuriously self-indulgent coconut snowballs which are cake-like treats, mostly coated in pink-colored desiccated coconut.Print
An easy and wonderful treat to prepare at home, so let’s get started
- 4 eggs
- 1 1/2 cup castor sugar
- 1 tablespoon vanilla essence
- 1 cup oil
- 2 1/2 cup flour
- 3 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 cup milk
- 1 1/2 cup hot water
- 3 tablespoons apricot jam
- 1 tsp red food coloring
- 2–3 cups Desiccated coconut
- 1/2 cup fresh cream
- 1 tsp icing sugar
Using an electric mixer beat together eggs and sugar till light and fluffy.
Add vanilla and oil and mix well.
Gradually add the milk and mix gently, do not over mix.
Pour the cake batter into cupcake holders that you placed in the muffin pan
Bake for about 20-25 minutes in a preheated oven at 180C / 350F or until a tester inserted in the center of the cakes comes out clean
Cool the cupcakes in their pans for 10 minutes, then turn them out to cool completely.
Mix the water and apricot jam together and add 1 tsp red food coloring.
Allow to cool, dip in the cold syrup, and roll in coconut.
Whip ½ cup fresh cream with 1 tsp icing sugar
Slice snowballs into 2, pipe cream in the middle and place the other half on top.

Here we have the famous South African version, although I am not sure of the true origin of this moreish pink treat. Should you have more information, on the origin, please let me know, as I am always interested to find out the true origin of food.
One can say that these coconut snowballs. have the appearance of a whoopie pie, an American baked product that may be considered either a cookie, pie, sandwich, or cake. The same applies to these lovely homemade pink-colored coconut snowballs. It is made of two round mound-shaped pieces of cake with a sweet, creamy filling or frosting sandwiched between them.
