It’s Christmas time and no table or fridge is complete unless it has some thermomix Christmas Snow Balls. These are bite size (and a little addictive!) but ever so delicious! You have some sweetness, some butteryness and beautiful little bites of squishy cherries/cranberries & then bite down on a some pistachio to finish off. 🙂
You really can’t go wrong with these ones + they are so quick to whip up and perfect for those last minute Christmas gifts (especially if the family have eaten everything else that was destined for gift giving!)
- 250g Arnotts Butternut Snap biscuits
- 60g pistachio nuts, shelled
- 100g white chocolate melts
- 60g desiccated coconut + extra for rolling
- 80g dried cranberries or cherries
- 1 tsp ThermoFun Vanilla Bean Paste
- 1 tsp cinnamon, ground
- 400g condensed milk
- Line a slice tin with baking paper allowing paper to overhang sides.
- Place biscuits into TM bowl and chop 5 sec / speed 8. Set aside.

- Add biscuit crumbs, pistachios, coconut, cranberries, vanilla, cinnamon and condensed milk and mix 8 sec / speed 5 / Reverse.
