Key Lime Coconut Snowballs

Key Lime Coconut Snowballs(Adapted from CL)

2/3 cup graham cracker crumbs
6 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk (I used low fat)
1 teaspoon grated Key lime rind
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh Key lime juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup shredded desiccated coconut, divided
1 1/4 cups powdered sugar

Combine crumbs, sweetened condensed milk, rind, juice, and vanilla in a medium bowl. Add 2/3 cup coconut, and beat with a mixer at medium speed for 1 minute or until no longer grainy. Add sugar, 1/4 cup at a time, beating until well combined. Cover and chill 20 minutes. Even after chilling it was a little sticky.

Shape crumb mixture into 24 balls, about 1 teaspoon each. Place remaining 1/3 cup coconut in a shallow bowl; roll balls in coconut. Store in the refrigerator.

  1. Wow! These sound intensely flavorful. I hope it has a tart-sweet kick to it. They are pretty too, especially for this winter season. I hope I get a chance to try it during the holidays.
