The Yummiest Dessert Balls--Graham Balls!

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

What's on the fridge right now are yummy Graham balls that I made this morning. I'm planning to have a simple candy buffet table on my sons' parties next year, so I'm into trying out new desserts that are easy to make and are a hit to young kids.

I searched the Internet (yes, my go-to resource on these dessert recipes) and found some Graham balls recipe which includes M.Y San Crushed Grahams (of course), condensed milk, evaporated milk and cinnamon. But since I cannot find my cinnamon powder, and it's not really that common in my town, I omitted the ingredient and replaced it with a teaspoon of Bendorp cocoa powder. Maybe I should have added more of cocoa because I couldn't taste it anywhere in my mixture, but I just find the taste totally fine.

Anyway, here's the result:


200 grams M.Y. San Crushed Grahams
3 tbsp evaporated milk
3 ounces condensed milk
1 tsp Bendorp cocoa powder
sprinkles of your choice (I have some white chocolate droplets, crushed salted peanuts, and white and multicolored sprinkles.)

Just mix everything thoroughly (except the sprinkles) until the consistency yields to something you can form a ball out by rolling in between your palms. I use a 1/2 tbsp measuring spoon to maintain consistency in shape, but you can make yours as big or as small as you want. Then just roll the balls on sprinkles and place them in a nice cupcake liner or whatever your creativity can think of, for a nice presentation (for photo purposes and uploading to social media). Who knows? Someone might like it and ask you to make a batch for them for a price. :)
