How can I make vegan snowballs, you know, the ones made from coconut and chocalate. But there can't be any vegan margarine or butter, because I can't get any. Or any fancy products like that. Please help me!

Chocolate Coconut Cakes



1/2 cup shortening

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1 1/2 cups sugar

1/4 tsp salt

1 tsp vanilla

2 tsp ground flax seeds

1/2 cup water

2 1/2 cups flour

1/2 cup cocoa powder

1/2 cup coconut



Oven: 375 F

Cookie sheet: either greased or waxed paper on it

Put all wet ingredients in a bowl along w/ flax. Whisk well. Add dry. Stir and combine well.

Spoonful of batter. Bake about 17-19 minutes. Cool on wire rack.



These are a little crispier then normal snowballs, but the kids love them.

Snowballs down here are marshmallows covered in chocolate and coconut (I still miss them after 9 years!). I have no idea what the ones you're talking about are

Hmmm...the "snowballs" I used to eat weren't cooked, at least I don't think they were. They were kind of soft and chewy. Is that the kind you're thinking of? I wish I had a recipe for them. I did a Google search but I couldn't find anything.

Yeah those ones! The nice soft ones. The one I ate was made with cocoa, butter, oats and some other stuff mixed together and then rolled in coconut. What can you substitute for butter?

Can you get coconut oil? I can't get vegan margarine where I live, but I can get coconut oil although it's rather expensive. It is solid at room temperture and works well in place of butter. Or what about shortening? Unhealthy, but it works. I am not sure if a liquid oil would hold them together...the texture probably wouldn't be right.



I have a huge craving for those now! I wonder where I can find a recipe. May have to do some experimenting.
