Ginger Snowballs

ginger snowballs recipe

These ginger snowballs are not the healthiest option (I often make alternatives, like apricot balls or date & oat balls).  However, they are great for parties, a fun treat and I do put them in my kids lunch box sometimes (the children love it when I do.  They are simple to make and freeze well too. Recipe Card
