(So it's Tuesday.. I know... but in my defense I started this post yesterday but between making valentines working on "school work" and feeding my offspring I got a little distracted but on the upside TWO posts today! YAY!!! I'm trying to get my act together and if posting a day late helps well its what I gotta do!)
These snowballs are not your average snowballs... and they are certainly not those yucky pink marshmallow ones either!
In this corner of Canada snowballs or at least the edible ones are made of chocolate and coconut and then rolled in more coconut... Not so nice if you don't like coconut but if you do... YUM!
These snowballs are from a recipe from my grandmother.... they are Christmas to me.... I love them soooo much that she once made me a batch (an entire batch just for me) for my Christmas gift! I love them sooo much that I finally asked for the recipe and I make them every year... except this year. I ran out of time and never got to make them.... but I so wish I had.
So since I had the ingredients just sitting in the cupboards I thought that I would whip up a batch and I was so glad that I did....
NOTE: I have no pictures for this post... that may or may not be because I have eaten them all...
This is a super easy recipe and has just 6 ingredients....
2 tbsp butter (maybe a little more)
1 block of bakers chocolate (or more... I use chocolate chips and I use a cup or so, this will require more butter)
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/2c coconut (plus enough to roll the snowballs in)
2c graham crumbs
large marshmallows (cut in half)
Melt chocolate and butter in a double boiler then combine with other ingredients and wrap a small portion (about a teaspoon) around the 1/2 marshmallow then roll in coconut.
Do you have a family recipe that you just can't pass up? I'd love to hear about it in the comments!
