Chunky Chocolate Morsels

Friends far and near ~ Listen up!
These are one of the BEST and YUMMIEST
of the many Christmas treats out there.

My Mum-in-Love faithfully made this recipe
year after year after year.  Now, they are on my must-do list.
They were always staple treat at Christmas time.
Long ago, she graciously shared the recipe with me!
Thank you, precious Mum!

Easy.  Simple.  No baking.  
I do believe you will thank me for this.

~ Chunky Chocolate Morsels ~

In a medium heavy-bottomed saucepan,

bring the following ingredients to a boil ~

1 1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup milk (I use whole milk)

Once it's come to a boil,

reduce the heat to medium and cook until thickened.
This will take approximately 5 minutes.
Remove pan from heat and stir in 1 1/2 tsp vanilla.
Let cool a little.

Stir in the following ingredients and mix thoroughly ~

2 cups rolled (or quick cooking) oats

2 cups unsweetened, shredded coconut
1 cup coloured mini marshmallows, cut in half with kitchen shears
1 cup chopped pecans (I use soaked and dried)
1/2 cup drained maraschino cherries, chopped

Scrape mixture out of pan and into a medium bowl.

Cover and refrigerate for a few hours or overnight.
Once cool, roll between your palms to make 1 inch balls.
Roll in coconut and store in fridge or freezer.
Separate layers with parchment or waxed paper.


With Love, Camille
