Snowball Recipe

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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + freezing YIELD:36 servings

Ingredients

  • 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

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. 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.
