Thank you for trying!
- 1 lb graham cracker, crushed
- 2 (10 1/2 ounce) bags mini marshmallows
- 1 (10 ounce) jar maraschino cherries, chopped
- 1 cup walnuts, chopped
- 2 (14 ounce) cans condensed milk, sweetened
- 1 (14 ounce) bag coconut
- Mix in large pan, refrigerate 2 hours.
- Roll into balls then roll in coconut.
When putting the ingredients together, I was doubting the outcome would be good. It ended up being a hit. I have a few people in my family who do not like coconut, so I rolled some of the balls in graham cracker crumbs instead and it held up great. Without an outer coating, the balls will "melt" or lose it's shape so make certain you roll them in some kind ingredient to keep them together.
good recipie i used mixed diced fruit (the kind that you buy at xmas for the baking it gives it a really nice colour and taste) instead of the cherries this recipie is easy to double and when baking that is a must
Sorry, your recipe does not say what size bag of the marshmallow. Mini's come in 2 different size. I used 2 large bags, then I had to add another can of milk. Doesn't say what size jar of cherries to use either. Also, when trying to roll the balls, my hands were sticky and I was glad my 14 y/o son was there to help roll the balls in coconut as I dropped them from my sticky hands. Also, my husband does not like coconut and I put some in a dish for him to cut bars and he wants.
