Food Friday: Cherry-Coconut Snowballs

January 23, 2009

I know it has been a few weeks since I have posted a five ingredient recipe but I have not forgotten about them.    I made these a few weeks ago for a dinner party at a friends house and they were a big hit.  They seem to go with all the snow we have been having this winter. 

dessert

1 package chocolate covered cherries

1 pt vanilla ice cream

1 cup sweetened flaked coconut, toasted as pkg directs and cooled

1 cup semisweet chocolate

3/4 cup heavy or whipping cream

Place chocolate-covered cherries about 5 in apart on a baking sheet lined with non-stick foil or wax paper; freeze 10 minutes.  Remove ice cream from freezer to soften slightly.

Press a scoop of ice cream over each cherry.  Return to freezer for 20 minutes.

Put coconut in a medium bowl. Remove ice cream from baking sheet and roll in coconut, pressing coconut against balls.  Freeze balls on lined sheet 30 minutes.

Place semisweet chocolate in a saucepan over low heat until melted, stirring continuously.   Add cream and stir to combine.

Remove balls from freezer and drizzle with chocolate sauce or serve on the side.

    Im never going to be the type of person who buys square plates, like the one in the picture.

    I know they are supposed to be fancy and all…but its really weird eating off a plate that isnt round.

    If I didn’t love you, I’d hate you right now. Mmmm.

    Yeah, give me the toasted coconut/vanilla ice cream combo and I’m your gal forever.


  4. You lost me at coconut, but still love the way you write.

    As I get ready to tackle the questions you sent me, I can’t help but wonder why one of them wasn’t “Where can I send you some Cherry-Coconut Snowballs?”

    I really like coconut.

    Damn, I am in love with your recipes!
    Now all I have to do is think of an occasion to serve something like that and get the courage to take on the challenge.
