Belgian Sneeuwballen (Snowballs) Recipe

Available only from September to March, sneeuwballen (lit. snowballs) are traditional Belgian sweet treats consisting of a vanilla cloud that is coated with dark Belgian chocolate and sprinkled with icing sugar.

Although the recipe is still a closely guarded secret of the Larmuseau brand, it is known that a perfect sneeuwbal will crack when you bite into it, and it should melt on your tongue.

These delicious treats were invented in the early 20th century by August Larmuseau from Ghent..

DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO MAKE BELGIAN SNEEUWBALLEN (SNOWBALLS) RECIPE

Beat the butter with the vanilla powder until nice and white. Let the butter come to room temperature softly

Now add the pieces of fondant sugar to the butter mixture while beating. It is important that the mass is nicely whipped.

Fill a piping bag with a round nozzle with this cream. Pipe nice flat slices of 3 to 4 cm in diameter and 1 cm thick on baking or butter paper. These slices will become our filling.

Place the slices in the fridge for at least 2 hours, until they have set.

Melt the chocolate in the microwave or stovetop to about 35°C. Mix the icing sugar and cornflour and sieve. Pour the mixture into a rimmed plate.
