Chocolate & Coconut Snowball Truffles Recipe: Secret Life of Pets Snowball Treat

slop1

One of my entire family’s favorite movies this summer was The Secret Life of Pets.  Maybe it’s because we’re animal lovers, but this movie hit all the right chords. We humans can FINALLY know what our pets do all day when we’re not with them. The characters, the scenes, the story line, and the jokes were all on target. Naturally, when we heard that the film was coming to Blu-ray and DVD, we wanted to do a little something to celebrate! Snowball was for sure one of our favorite characters and we thought it would be fun to have a little snack inspired by the naughtiest bunny around. This chocolate coconut snowball truffles recipe post is in partnership with Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.
