- 1/2 cup butter, cubed
- 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
- 3 tablespoons baking cocoa
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups graham cracker crumbs (about 32 squares)
- 3-1/2 cups flaked coconut, divided
- 32 to 35 large marshmallows
- Line a baking sheet with waxed paper; set aside.
- 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.
- 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. Cover and freeze until firm. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer. May be frozen for up to 2 months. Yield: about 3 dozen.
Reviews for Snowball
"the best snow balls love them"
"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."
"I made these for a party and I had people begging for the recipe. They're so good!!"
"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."
"I always have to make batches throughout the season! My kids never get sick of them!"
