I've been making these popular treats for 40 years, much to my family's delight. They look impressive with chocolate and coconut wrapped around a chewy marshmallow center, yet they're surprisingly simple to assemble.

Directions

  1. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper; set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan, combine the butter, milk, cocoa and vanilla. Cook and stir over medium heat until butter is melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from the heat; stir in cracker crumbs and 1-1/2 cups coconut. Let stand until cool enough to handle.
  3. Using moistened hands, wrap about 1 tablespoon of mixture around each marshmallow (dip hands in water often to prevent sticking). Roll in remaining coconut; place on prepared baking sheet.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 2, 2013

I made these a few days ago 12/30/2012,

I thought that the whole marshmallow was too much so I cut the marshmallow in half.

I found the snowball was a bit difficult to cover and roll, I did keep my hands moist but still... maybe I need more practice.

Easy and very kid-friendly! I didn't have any graham crackers on hand, so I used crushed Oreo cookies instead and they turned out great.

These are amazing!!! I was reluctant to even try them, but hubby wanted them. I will make these every year. My kids loved them right out of the freezer and they keep so well! Fantastic recipe!
