And now for something completely different!

I went into a shop today and the first items I saw were bags of Snowballs. I told my son I bought some and he asked me what they were. I thought everyone knew but just in case, here are a couple of photos.

Food has all sorts of purposes and meaning in our lives. My dad loved Snowballs. In fact it is one of the last things I remember him eating when I last saw him a few weeks before he died at 89 years old. When I visited I often brought him Snowballs and for my mum it was ginger chocolates!

In case you haven’t come across them before they are balls of marshmallow dipped in chocolate and then rolled in coconut. Sometimes they are advertised as “fat free” which almost makes them sound healthy.

Here is a little video on how to make them. This one uses bought marshmallows but my mum used to make her own.

Yum!

  1. I have never heard of them but they look and sound delicious. Your mum used to make her own marshmallows? OMG I honestly never even thought that would be possible. Haha, its just one of those things I have always seen at the market since I was a kid. I may try to make them, but I will probably use the store bought marshmallows too.

    • From memory marshmallows are mostly egg white, sugar and gelatine! Have fun making them 🙂 Thanks for visiting.

    • Thanks Nancy. That’s fascinating and they sound yummy too! I was really surprised when my son didn’t know what they were – he does now though :). Thanks for visiting!
