The perfect dessert to celebrate the spirit of Christmas, Chocolaty Snowballs offer your palate sheer joy. A mix of Marie biscuits and crumbled chocolate sponge cake provide the snowballs a melt-in-the-mouth texture, while cranberries pose a tangy match to the intense dark chocolate flavour of this dessert. Rolling the snowballs in desiccated coconut improves the texture and also gives the snowballs the attractive appearance that the name deserves. If you are not serving immediately, you can refrigerate it, and use for up to three days. In fact, refrigeration gives it a crunch, which you will thoroughly enjoy.
