Intro: No Bake Candy Cane Snowballs
It's that time of the year again, the Holiday season comes with its fair share of baking. How about adding this twist on an old favourite my No Bake Candy Cane Snowballs. They are extra special this time of year and you can substitute the candy cane for some coconut if you're into the classic recipe more. I have a few friends who are really not into coconut, that's why I came up with this alternative. I hope you enjoy it and please like share and subscribe to my channel for lots of great recipes and food tips.
Step 1: Ingredients
- 1 cup butter
- 1 cup of milk
- 3 cups sugar
- 1 tsp salt
- 6 cups rolled oats
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- powdered candy cane for rolling in ( You can use a mortar & pestle, a coffee grinder, or a blender to achieve this. I used a mortar & pestle).
- Baking sheet for laying the snowballs on
- 2 mixing bowls 1 small for the candy cane and 1 big for the chocolate oats mixture
- a medium sauce pot
- and a whisk
Step 2: Step 1: Heat Up the Sugar
In a sauce pan at medium heat add: milk, sugar, butter, and salt. Bring to a boil.
*You only need to get it to a boil here, no need to go too far with it. Give it a good stir before the next step.
Step 3: Step 2: Combine
Take off the heat and add the cocoa powder and rolled oats. Refrigerate for an hour. You can mix the rolled oats and cocoa powder together in the big mixing bowl before adding the hot mixture that way you only use the one bowl. Then you just mix it all together until it's well dissolved, the mixture will look like a paste that's why you have to refrigerate.
Step 4: Step 3: Roll Those Chocolate Balls in the Candy Cane
Form the mixture into small balls about the size if ping pong balls with your hands and roll in the candy cane powder. You can freeze them for at least one hour or refrigerate them and try not to eat them all. Feel free to get creative with this recipes and change out the stuff you roll it in. Imagination is great here. I hope you enjoy and remember to subscribe to my cooking channel.
