Chocolate Coconut Snowballs

Chocolate Coconut Snowballs

Both my mom and my grandma make a holiday goodie that they call "snowballs", but they're different kinds of snowballs. My mom's are the Russian tea cakes (or Mexican wedding cookies), while my grandma's are these chocolate oat coconut snowballs. My mom's snowballs are good, but the combination of chocolate, coconut and oats (even just coconut and oats without chocolate) always wins for me. Both my brother and I really love these. And they're super easy to make. They don't require any fancy ingredients and can easily be made vegan if you use vegan butter/margarine and nondairy milk.
