I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Newfoundland Coconut Snowballs

These no bake little nuggets are a Newfoundland Christmas treat. Since my great grandmother was a Newfoundlander I felt I should give these a look see! Keep them in the freezer or fridge. And if you are the type that wants your treat like now then these are for you because you can eat them straight from the freezer!

These are similar to but not the same as Hairy Moose Farts. You'll find the link to that recipe at the end of this post!

1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
3/4 cup oats
1 cup + 1 1/2 cups shredded, unsweetened coconut
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp salt
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp vanilla, coconut or almond extract
1 package large marshmallows

Mix the graham crumbs, oats, 1 cup coconut, cocoa powder and salt together in a large bowl. In another bowl combine the melted butter, condensed milk and extract of your choice, then pour the wet ingredients into the large bowl of dry ingredients and mix to combine.
Have a small bowl of water ready. You will need to wet your hands to handle the dough. Place 1 1/2 cups of coconut into another shallow bowl. Take a heaping tablespoon of dough and flatten it in the palm of your hand. Now take a marshmallow and wrap it in the dough. Roll into a ball then into the coconut to coat.
Place the snowballs on a lined cookie sheet and freeze for 2 hours. After 2 hours take a sharp knife and slice the snowballs in half.
This recipe makes 13 snowballs/26 halves.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer and if you're not into eating them frozen just defrost for about 20 minutes.
Here's that other Newfoundland sweet:
