Ice Cream Snowballs

The House of Loreto residents agree there's no better way to enjoy this festive ice cream dessert than in the warm atmosphere of dinner with friends and family. For extra fun, we sometimes top each snowball with a lit red candle.

    My family has been making snowballs for years, but we serve them with hot fudge around the ball, and always toast the coconut. Absolutely delicious! 5 star dessert with this adjustment.
