Recipe # 13: Snowball Jewels

This is one I can't quite recommend yet. My mom made something like this years ago and we both remember it as being wonderful, but she misplaced the recipe. I searched high and low last year to find what we thought was a similar recipe and ahead we went. Unfortunately, last year these spread a bit too much and the edges were crispy...we weren't very impressed. We included them in this year's cookie bake just in case it was something we did wrong that made them not-so-great. I did look for a new recipe to try, but didn't come up with one we thought would be better so if they don't turn out this year, well...there are plenty of other recipes waiting to take their place in my list!!

Snowball Jewels
1 14 oz package of coconut
1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon almond extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cup M&Ms

Combine all ingredients, mix well. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 9-11 minutes or until edges are very lightly browned.

Using moistened spatula, immediately remove from cookie sheet to cool on wire racks.

I am interested in helping but wouldn't be able to bake until next that too late? I have been following the Operation Baking Gals for a few months, but the timely hasn't been that great. I noticed that you were both from Michigan and that caught my eye. I too am from Michigan, Milford to be exact. Please let me know what you think and how I could help.

Our baking window is from Oct 30 to Nov 10, so next Monday would be just fine. Drop me an email to and I'll help you get everything in the works.
