Christmas Theme - Laura's DessertThis was made for the Christmas supper. It comes from the Australian Women’s Weekly Christmas cookbook (2008).


  • 360g white chocolate
  • 1/3 cup cream
  • 2 tablespoons Malibu
  • 1 cup dessicated coconut
  • 3 unsalted pistachios
  • 9 dried cranberries


  1. Roughly chop the white chocolate. Place it in a small saucepan with cream and Malibu and stir over a low heat until smooth.
  2. Remove mixture from heat, pour into a container and refrigerate for 3 hours.
  3. Make six balls made from 2 teaspoons of mixture each, and six bigger balls from 3 teaspoons of mixture each, then six large balls from a tablespoon of mixture each. Place these on a tray and refrigerate again until truffles are firm.
  4. To make the snowmen, roll ruffles in coconut. Then stack three different sized balls to form snowmen. Secure with wooden toothpicks to  keep them in shape. Use pieces of pistachio for nodes and pieces of cranberries for eyes. Ribbon can be used to make scarves.

Makes 6 snowmen.
