“I have been making these for many years and my grandchildren and now great-grandchildren always ask me to make them.” Myra
This family and community favourite originally comes from the 1997 St. Joseph’s recipe book.
Myra lives in Redwood, Ōtautahi /Christchurch which she says is very friendly - lots of different nationalities and children. She was on the local community board for three terms and has very fond memories of cooking hundreds and hundreds of sausages for a Children’s Day event in Groynes park.
“We also supported people who wanted to hold something in their neighbourhood and it was great fun going to all sorts of happenings” Myra
Melt but do not boil, condensed milk, brown sugar, cocoa, butter, and vanilla. Crush biscuits and add to melted ingredients.
Roll around a marshmallow or chocolate ball in the mixture, then roll in coconut, and freeze.
Tip from Myra: The trick is to have wet hands when rolling around the balls. I roll and place them in a dish that has coconut in it and when the dish is full I pick them up and roll them in the coconut.
