Toblerone Snowballs

Toblerone snowballs, truffles, sweets or candy - call them what you will but here's how to make them!

I made these the other week, they were the result of an experiment for something completely different that went wrong.

Toblerone Snowballs or truffles

I was actually trying to make a Toblerone Fondue recipe when I discovered that when you add runny honey to melted Toblerone it immediately goes like stiff sticky-goo - so that failed!.

But fear not because this is how my Toblerone snowballs were made!

Yield: 8-10

Toblerone Snowballs - Truffles

Toblerone Snowballs - Truffles

These are the result of an experiment that went wrong. Toblerone Snowballs, Truffles, Sweets? Call them what you will but here they are!


  • 150g Toblerone
  • 1 tablespoon runny honey
  • a few tablespoons unsweetened desiccated coconut 


  1. Get yourself a plate put the unsweetened desiccated coconut on it.
  2. Melt 150g of Toblerone in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water (don't let the bowl touch the water).
  3. Remove from heat and stir in just half a tablespoon of runny honey - it will immediately go like stiff sticky- goo, but fear not!
  4. Let it cool for a few seconds; just long enough to handle although it will still be quite hot and roll into 8 to 10 balls.
  5. Rolling each one as you go in the coconut - just heat it up again if it becomes unworkable.
  6. Transfer to a baking sheet or plate lined with greaseproof paper and leave to set in the fridge for an hour.
  7. That's it - your done.


Be sure to use only 'unsweetened' desiccated coconut otherwise they will be far too sweet.

  1. Jan, accident or not, these look delicious. This is my first visit to your blog, so I spent some time browsing through your earlier posts. I'm so glad I did that. I really like the food and recipes you share with your readers and I'll definitely be back. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

  2. Wow, those sound great Jan and so quick. I like the fact that this just makes a small batch, most of my recipes for similar-style truffles (although lets face it these are unique) make a cast of thousands.

  3. I can't believe I didn't see these before! They look oh oh so good! Love coconut and toblerone so can't go wrong!

    How long did they keep for? (Am thinking ahead for xmas nibbles!)

  4. Anne they weren't around long enough to find out lol. I expect a few days in the fridge? Mind you it's only chocolate so I'm not sure - could be a good week.
    They take no time to make though.
