Marshmallow-Stuffed Graham Balls Recipe

 

Prep Time 10 minutes

Makes 100 pieces

 

2 (200-g) packs crushed graham crackers

1 (250-g) tetra pack condensed filled milk

100 pieces medium-sized marshmallows

1 (50-g) bag desiccated coconut

 

1 Sprinkle the desiccated coconut into a shallow plate; set aside. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the graham crackers and condensed milk until they form a firm, slightly stick mixture. You should be able to pick up parts of the mixture and form them into balls with your hands.

 

2 Using slightly wet hands, scoop out 1-inch balls of the graham mixture. Flatten, then place a marshmallow in the middle. Cover the marshmallow with the graham crust and roll into the desiccated coconut; set aside. Repeat for the remaining marshmallows. Wrap in cellophane or place into boxes.

 

 

Cost Breakdown:

 

Crushed graham crackers (200g) x 2

P33 x 2 = P66

 

Condensed milk (250 g)

P48

 

Marshmallows (100 pieces)

P31

 

Desiccated coconut (50g)

P16

 

Total Cost: P 161 or P1.61 per piece

 

If you price this product at P5 per piece, you'll be earning a little over 3 times the amount of your cost. You can wrap these graham balls up in cellophane (like little candies!) or place them into small boxes or plastic containers for bulk orders. Not bad for a first timer, huh?
