At my ‘orphan’ Christmas dinner (my friend called all the teachers in Korea orphans because we don’t have family to spend time with in Korea) we couldn’t remember if these were called ‘Eskimo balls’ or ‘snowballs’ or any other name…turns out it was ‘Eskimo snowballs’ but I don’t see a point in calling it that, as snowballs gets the point across.
