M&M's Crunchy Snowballs
- 1 C. M&M's Chocolate Mini Baking Bits
- 1 1/2 tsp. margarine
- 2 C. miniature marshmallows
- 1/2 C. almonds
- 3/4 C. coconut
In a non-stick, medium-sized saucepan, melt margarine and marshmallows, over medium heat until smooth. Remove from heat. Add almonds and coconut, coating completely with marshmallow mixture. Using buttered spoons, shape into balls and roll in M&M's.
Variation: To make tropical snowballs, reduce coconut to 1/2 C. (120 mL) and add 1/4 C. (60 mL) dried fruit such as pineapple (diced), banana chips (broken into small pieces), or papaya.
Yield: about 18 snow balls
