White Chocolate Coconut Snowball Truffles are a make-ahead Christmas treat that your friends and family will love. White chocolate truffles wrapped in shredded coconut.
Here are we again, the Christmas season is upon us. We have lots of fun and festive things to look forward to this holiday season. Christmas markets, parties, trips, and plenty of cozy time at home. I think that the season is so much better when you have the time and energy to enjoy it.
For me, that means saying yes to the things that really matter to us and saying no to the things that don’t. Christmas cards will always be a yes. Homemade hot chocolate is always in heavy rotation. Exploring the Christmas things that wherever we live has to offer. (This year we get to explore the European Christmas Markets. We already went to one in Scotland and it was pure magic.) Gingerbread houses. Christmas morning cinnamon rolls. Things that are a hard no – shopping malls (if I can’t buy it online, I don’t buy it) and not having any empty weekend days on the calendar in the month of December.
Now that our children are a bit older, the holidays take on a new meaning. This morning my oldest was hanging out with us and it occurred to me that we have only four more Christmases before he is in college. I am going to focus my time and energy on what matters to me, my family.
I enjoy Christmas baking and cooking. There are recipes that I make once a year and I love making them year after year. I like to give homemade gifts to my friends and neighbors. I think that it says that you appreciate and care about them. I used to make tons of different things, but now I stick to three or four really good things that I know people will like and that are pretty easy to make in bulk and effort. These White Chocolate Coconut Snowball Truffles are just the thing. My kids can help with the rolling and the dredging in coconut. I package them in clear plastic bags with a pretty silver bow. A delicious holiday gift and a fun family activity.
