Taken from family friend Mrs. Strong.
2 cups finely shredded sweetened coconut
2 cups graham wafer crumbs
1/2 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 tin sweetened condensed milk
1 bag large white marshmallows
Place coconut and graham crumbs in a large mixing bowl. Add softened butter and rub together with your hands until well blended.
Add condensed milk and vanilla. Stir until well blended.
On a flat surface, lay a long sheet (about 2 feet) of waxed paper. Place half of cookie mixture on the sheet an flatten to a rectangle approximately 6 x 24.
Place a row of marshmallows side by side along edge of mixture. Using the wax paper as a guide, roll mixture tightly around marshmallows and seal seam by pressing together. Twist ends of waxed paper (so it looks like a giant candy wrapper) and freeze.
Repeat with remaining cookie mixture.
Cut cookies from frozen roll and enjoy frozen or thawed.
In two weeks, I've made these twice - they are a popular item for my Christmas tins!
|This may look more like a stick of chicken schawarma, but don't be alarmed - |
you can remove the wax paper and cut the whole roll,
or simply cut off the ends.
