I don’t know where you live, but if you're in Toronto, you know how much snow we’ve had this winter – four feet of fuck-all. It feels like I’m trapped in the longest March of my life.

I know some of you exercise types might be happy about that, but the rest of us ain't. I paid good money to have snow tires put on the car. Is one catastrophic blizzard too much to ask for?

Until we get snow, here’s a tasty stand in. Granted, you can’t build a fort out of these snowballs. And I wouldn’t want one of these whipped at my head (unless my mouth was open). But they taste a lot better than actual snow. If you can remember what snow tastes like. Sigh.

1 cup sifted icing sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon butter or margarine
1 cup Rice Krispies
1 cup coconut
Icing Mixture
¼ cup milk
1 teaspoon icing sugar

Cream icing sugar, butter and peanut butter together. Add the Rice Krispies and make into small balls. Add and mix the icing sugar and milk to make the mixture into which the balls are dipped. After dipping, roll in coconut. NO BAKING IS REQUIRED!

WEATHER UPDATE: I posted this in the morning. It's evening now and guess what? It's snowing. Coincidence? I don't think so. I'm on the phone to the Ripley's Believe or Not people right now.

  1. Crap. These look amazing.
    Winter hasn't arrived here, either. It's upsetting me.

  2. I hear you, Yinzerella. Do you how long it takes to get a toboggan down a grassy hill? A really long time.

  3. These look like they'd be a winter wallop of flavour in my mouth! I guess, since there's no snow to play in this winter, sitting around and eating balls ain't so bad.

  4. Vintage Cabin, these balls explode in your mouth with flavour.
