- Whiz all snowball ingredients in a food processor or blender, scraping the sides down often, until it’s sticky and well combined.
- Roll balls of the mixture into balls, and roll each ball into more shredded coconut. Thread three balls onto each stick.
- Cut the raisins into small pieces for the snowman eyes and mouths, and the apricots into triangles for the noses.
- Decorate with the raisin and apricot pieces and add any tiny hats or scarves!
- Store in the fridge.
Top Tip: Get your little ones involved in making these organic snowmen. Even toddlers can help roll the coconut balls and decorate their snowmen. It’s a great way for children to experience the joy of eating organic this Christmas.
