Cherry Marshmallow Balls – an easy no bake recipe using just a few ingredients to make a quick treat whenever you like. Perfect for cookie exchanges!
These Cherry Marshmallow Balls are often seen on bakery shelves around here, especially as we move closer to the Holidays. Although this recipe is readily available at several sources online, I thought I’d post my version because I’ve tweaked it just a little. I found the original version a little too sweet and a little too unmanageable to form into balls.
I’ve tweaked the individual amounts of the ingredients to stretch the batch a little further and, I think, to make them a little more manageable. One trick I use is to roll the balls twice.
Roll once in the coconut, when they are really sticky, and then once again when they are all rolled and sitting on the parchment paper lined tray.
I like to wash may hands and then roll the balls again to shape them better. I find that this works particularly well.
These no-bake Cherry Marshmallow Balls treats will be a big hit on your cookie platters at the Holidays and make a terrific choice for cookie exchanges with particularly little effort involved.

- ounce one 10 can sweetened condensed milk 300 ml
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
- 3 cups mini marshmallows
- 1 cup chopped glacé cherries or well drained maraschino cherries
- cups approximately 2 coconut for rolling
In a large bowl stir the vanilla extract into the sweetened condensed milk.
Fold in the graham crumbs.
Add the cherries and marshmallows and fold those in gently.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or wax paper.
Roll the mixture into about 1 1/2 inch balls and then roll the balls in the coconut. Place on the lined cookie sheet and continue until all the mixture is used.
Wash your hands and then pick up each ball and re roll it. You can use more coconut if necessary but this step helps to form the cookies into more uniform balls.
Refrigerate or freeze to store.
