No! I don’t mean THOSE kind of snowballs. I mean the delicious chocolate cakes filled with marshmallow creme, frosted in even more marshmallow creme and then coated in delicious coconut.
I’ve had this recipe bookmarked for quite some time now. I’m not sure why, but yesterday out of all days I decided I just had to make them. Since I’m trying to stay away from sweets I only ate one and brought the rest to my mother-in-law. She’s living far out in the sticks now so she looks forward to any sweets I bring her way. You should have seen her face when she saw these bad boys.
I made a few changes to the cake recipe. For starters I used vegan butter in place of regular butter, 1 1/2 cups of sugar instead of 2 cups and unsweetened coconut milk. Also, am I the only one who really wants the glass displayed on their homepage hahaha? Anyway, then I used some Ricemellow to fill and frost the cupcakes and coated them in blue(ish) colored coconut. I ran out of red food coloring or I would have gone with pink.
They were nowhere near as difficult as they look. Frosting and filling the cupcakes were a bit messy, but otherwise it was pretty quick and painless. Afterward I popped them in an airtight container and allowed them to chill in the fridge overnight to firm up a bit. I swear they taste just like I remembered. Only BETTER! Good thing I got rid of them though. These guys would have caused me nothing but trouble.
