Christmas 2-Bite Snowballs

Rating: Not Rated 15 Comments

Traditional style chocolate coconut snowball with a duncan hines twist. These little 2-Bite gems are the best I have ever tried.


  1. In a saucepan combine the butter, milk and sugar.
  2. Heat until butter is melted and sugar is dissolved.
  3. DO NOT BOIL !!!
  4. In a large mixing bowl, combine coconut, cake mix, rolled oats.
  5. Mix all ingredients together.
  6. Chill until firm (overnight at least).
  7. Roll into balls and then roll in extra coconut.
  8. Place in containers, freeze until ready to eat!!!!!

Do you use sweetened coconut? Shredded?

do you bake these at all .

HollyC on Dec 6, 2011 6:06 p.m.

No you do not bake them. You will have to let them set up covered in the fridge overnight.

I can't imagine how these would taste without any baking involved?

Try it for yourself. They are delicious!

This is such a great and simple idea! Do you have any other recipes that incorporate vanilla cake mix (or other flavors)?

HollyC on Dec 6, 2011 6:10 p.m.

You could always try the cake pops. Just make any flavour duncan hines cake mix and let cool. Then crumble the cake into a large bowl and mix with a 1/2 to 3/4 cup duncan hines icing. Let set in the fridge for a couple hours and then roll into balls and dip into melted chocolate. (decorate with sprinkles, roll in nuts, draw faces with edible paint...its endless..) You can serve them on a popsicle stick or just pop them into the mini cupcake liners. I will try to post a recipe of the little cake pop truffles I made for Easter last year within the next couple days :)

They look delicious. My boys don't like coconut. Do you think I could use finely chopped almonds or is there something else you can recommend.

Thank you HollyC.. Great idea. I am going to try to make it this weekend.

If your children dislike coconut, why not try adding chopped peanuts, almonds or walnuts. I would add a little more of the rolled oats as well considering that the coconut counts for 5 cups of ingredience. Also, as a little hidden treat, take a mini marshmallow and wrap your batter around it to form a ball and then roll it in whatever u like (maybe even icing sugar). Hmmmm, now that has me thinking....Im going to have to try that suggestion myself.... Thanks so much and I hope that it works out well with whatever combination u may try!
