Rocky Road Snowballs (Gluten-Free)

Enlist your favourite helping hands to roll these delights and coat them in coconut. For a nut-free variation, replace walnuts with chopped glazed cherries.   Servings: 75 snowballs *  I don't know how many my batch made because the husband ate half the pan while I was at work, before they got rolled.


    1-1/2 cups (375 mL) chopped walnuts 1 cup (250 mL) mini-marshmallows 
    1-1/2 cups (375 mL) shredded sweetened coconut


In bowl over saucepan of simmering water, melt together semisweet chocolate chips, milk chocolate chips and cream cheese, stirring occasionally, until very thick. Remove from heat; stir in walnuts and marshmallows. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.

Roll by scant 1 tbsp (15 mL) into balls; roll each in coconut. Place on waxed paper-lined baking sheet; refrigerate until hardened, about 1 hour. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 5 days.)
