I had a recipe I'm sure it was snowballs, I remember the two ingredients mentioned, raisons or sultanas, something else and rolling them in coconut. They are delicious, if anyone can supply the original recipe I would really appreciate it. Thank you

would the other ingredient be Kremelta or condensed milk.
I think I know what you are taking about but don't have a recipe sorry.
The ones we made were called bulls eyes, they had a date or prune in the centre with mixture rolled around outside.

It had coconut, raisons, milk powder, weetbix,condensed milk and butter I think but don't remember quantities or other ingredients.

doesn't anyone have this recipe!

Not sure if this is the recipe you are looking for but is the closest I could see, just replace the marshmallows with your dried fruit. There are several more recipes all slightly different on this website.

rayoz - I remember that recipe from the early 80s. we use to make it all the time.Can't find it amongst mine tho, but will keep looking for you

Yes, 80's fare it was! Cant's remember the exact quantities but uses condensed milk, coconut, choipped up dried fruits, and I think a bit of flour. I'll see if I can find the original, I'm pretty sure it's in one of my old cookbooks.:)

Not snowballs, but something similar called Bumblebees.


one tin sweetened condensed milk
one cup coconut
enough dried fruits to make a firm mixture
1/2 cup figs, chopped
1/2 cup currants
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup sultanas
1/2 packet crystallised ginger, chopped
1/2 packet cherries, chopped

Roll little 'sausages' in coconut and bake in a very slow oven (140*C) until they are set but not brown.

I can vaguely remember something made with milk powder, kremelta, sugar, dried fruit and maybe coconut.It was rolled into rough balls and served as a sweet (they tasted horrible by the way).it might have been an imitation of white chocolate.Does that sound likesnowballs!

OK . I have found a recipe that is called SNOWBALLS. Its very similar to Truffles and other recipies.
SNOWBALLS:Dissolve 2 Tbsp cocoa with 4oz melted butter.Mix in 1 cup sultanas, 1 cup icing sugar & 1 cup coconut.Firm mixture in fridge.Then form balls & roll in coconut.
Hopefully that is the recipe you are looking for.

I also have recipes for Coffee & Chocolate Truffles, Coffee Truffles, Date & Rum Truffles.Some recipes use Kremelta and others use butter or condensed milk.
