Snowballs Recipe

In a large saucepan, combine and boil together gently over medium high heat for 5 minutes or until mixture reaches about 230 degrees F on a candy thermometer:

3 cups sugar
3/4 cup melted butter
1 & 1/4 cups milk

Once mixture begins to boil it is very important not to stir it at all.

Mix together

3 cups large rolled oats
1 cup unsweetened fine coconut
12 tbsp cocoa

Add the boiled mixture to the dry ingredients until well combined and chill until mixture is able to be shaped into 1 1/2 inch balls. Roll the balls in additional coconut. Makes about 4 dozen. These freeze very well.
