Snowballs recipe
Yesterday, I made my own version of Snowballs. At first, I thought this dessert is something similar to Graham Balls but the ingredients are different, really different. It tastes creamy gelatin that has crushed pineapple and coated with ground peanuts.

We have cashew nuts here in our town but unfortunately I don’t have available at home and since I already have peanuts then I had used it instead (peanut is very easy to find). I got this recipe from a friend of mine and she shared this to me since this isn’t too sweet to eat  (I saw this recipe too at Del Monte website but the instructions are different).

Here are the ingredients needed to make this. I hope you have free time to try this recipe too because it is delicious, not too sweet and perfect for those who aren’t sweet tooth like me.

  • 1 can crushed pineapple (medium & drained)
  • 250 g marshmallow
  • 1 pack All-Purpose Cream (chilled)
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp unflavored powder gelatin
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 toasted cashew nuts/peanuts
  • Paper cups (optional)

Spoon, ice cream scoop or any round shape spoon

What to do with the ingredients:
If you have cashew nuts available, you need to grind it for the coating or if you don’t have cashew nuts then Peanuts can also be used.

Here is how to make it:
  1. Get 1 tbsp of powdered gelatin and dissolve it with water. Mix it well and set aside.
  2. Combine marshmallow and pineapple then mix. Leave it for 1 hour to soften the marshmallow then set aside.
  3. After 1 hour, mix sugar & dissolved gelatin to pineapple-marshmallow mixture.
  4. Cook it to a low-medium heat in a pot
  5. Stir continuously to avoid stickiness at the bottom of the pot
  6. And add all-purpose cream and stir it until marshmallows and cream are dissolved.
  7. After cooking: Transfer it to a container and let it be cooled, cover and refrigerate it overnight.
  8. Scoop a small round snowballs using a spoon or ice cream scoop
  9. Dip it to a ground cashew nuts/peanuts.

Coating (optional):
You can use other coatings aside from the ground peanuts like chocolate powder, powdered milk, sprinkles or any other coatings you like.

I tried the powdered milk and it tastes good to me.

Anyway, the gelatin should be in powder and not the one that has flavor so it should not have flavor.
