Christmas Calendar Door 15 - Snow Balls

I am continuing with yet another Christmas confect recipe in order to my Estonia colleague request !!! This time it is "Snow Balls", which overall is a quiet sweet type of confect due to the combination of nougat, marzipan and white chocolate. If you would like less sweetness, I would suggest you to replace the coating with white chocolate with dark chocolate, however, when this confect does not look like a snow ball !!!

I used 50 g nougat, as I was able to "finish up" the last un-used nougat. the amount of nougat to marzipan should not be bigger, as it would quiet difficult to cover the nougat part entire with marzipan.

Snow Balls:

  • 25-50 g nougat
  • 200 g plain marzipan
  • 150 g white chocolate 
  • 50-100 g desiccated coconut
  1. Cut the marzipan into 20 pieces of equal amount.
  2. Cut the nougat into 20 pieces of equal amount.
  3. Cover the nougat with marzipan.
  4. Form the marzipan into balls.
  5. Melt the white chocolate using the microwave oven.
  6. Coat the marzipan balls in white chocolate.
  7. Afterwards cover the marzipan ball in desiccated coconut, while the white chocolate still is wet. Below you can see a video of how you can roll the marzipan balls in the desiccated coconut.

Here you can see, how to give the final touche to "Snow Balls"
