MARSHMALLOW BALLS

I found this recipe among the collection and thought it sounded like something kids would like – marshmallows are always a winner. We decided to try it out to see what it tasted like. My daughter made them up and reports back that her girls loved them, but she found them quite bland. Mum must have thought that also, because she changed the biscuits from Digestives to Granitas, which have a bit more texture and flavour. My daughter thinks using Chocolate Ripple biscuits would be a good way to add extra flavour for adults. We’ll try that next time.

MARSHMALLOW BALLS

  • 1 tin condensed milk
  • 125g butter, melted
  • 1 packet Granita biscuits (or Chocolate Ripple) – finely crushed
  • 1 cup coconut
  • Marshmallows

Mix the milk, butter, biscuits & coconut together. Break into pieces and roll into a ball, flatten out and wrap mixture around a marshmallow. Refrigerate until set.

CHOCOLATE NOODLES

Don’t know where Mum got this recipe from, but I’m guessing she tasted it somewhere and was told the recipe by the cook. She either wrote it down then or when she got home. I’ve added a few instructions, but it’s typical of the hand written recipes from Mum’s collection, just the ingredients and she would work the rest out for herself. They taste great.
