Snowballs

While the Mid-West and East Coast get pounded with snow and ice, it's been relatively calm here in LA with temps in the mid to upper 60s. The only snowball I have encountered recently is the UK version pictured above.

Burns' Day was last week so a Scottish co-worker brought in a few UK treats to help us celebrate. January 25th is Scottish poet Robert Burns' birthday. To mark the occasion, the Scots have a "Burns Supper" of haggis, mashed potatoes and mashed turnips. Given that haggis is currently banned in the US, my co-worker brought in some slightly sweeter treats to share. Tunnock's Snowballs are soft marshmallows dipped in chocolate and then covered in coconut. They are insanely sweet and literally melt in your mouth. Brilliant!
