Newfoundland Snowballs

  • 3 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup melted butter
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 3 cups large rolled oats
  • 1 cup unsweetened fine coconut
  • 12 tbsp cocoa
  1.  In a large saucepan, combine sugar, melted butter, milk and boil together gently over medium high heat for 5 minutes or until mixture reaches about 230 degrees F on a candy thermometer:
  2. Once mixture begins to boil it is very important not to stir it at all.
  3. Mix together:  rolled oats,  coconut,  and cocoa.
  4. Add the boiled mixture to the dry ingredients until well combined and chill well. until mixture is able to be shaped into 1 1/2 inch balls. 
  5. Roll the balls in additional coconut. 
Makes about 4 dozen. These should be stored in the fridge. These freeze very well (my kids eat them frozen all the time, just like my siblings and I did as kids)
