Amaretto Snowballs

Posted: Updated:

There are only four ingredients in these delicious treats, and they're all natural, gluten free and vegan. These would be great to make with the kids (you can use amaretto extract instead of amaretto liqueur). 

AMARETTO SNOWBALLS

Servings: 12-15

2 cups blanched almonds

1 cup gluten free icing sugar + extra for coating

2 teaspoons almond extract

1-2 tablespoons amaretto liqueur (or all-natural amaretto extract for a non-alcoholic, child-friendly version)

Soak the blanched almonds in water for four hours or more (overnight is great) in the refrigerator. Rinse and drain completely. Pat dry with a paper towel.

Grind the almonds in a food processor until a very smooth paste forms. Add the icing sugar, almond extract and amaretto toward the end and continue processing to combine all the ingredients well.

At this point, the mixture may be too runny, and it will be hard to shape into balls. Simply place the mixture in the refrigerator or freezer for a few minutes to let it harden. Then, shape the mixture into small balls. Roll the balls in extra icing sugar for a snow-covered look.

Store in the refrigerator in an air-tight container for up to five days. Store in the freezer for up to one month in an air-tight container with a paper towel at the bottom and cover. Place in the refrigerator for 15-30 minutes to thaw before serving.
