Jahna Bell and her Mum love making these together.
100g butter
2 tablespoons of Nestle baking cocoa
1/2 can of sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
2 cups of plain sweet biscuit crumbs
10-12 marshmallows cut in half
Desiccated coconut for coating

Heat the butter, cocoa, brown sugar, and condensed milk in a medium sized saucepan until the butter and sugar just melt and the mixture is smooth.  Stir the mixture all the time.
Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the vanilla essence and biscuit crumbs until itís mixed thoroughly. Leave the mixture until it is cool enough to shape.
With wet hands shape some of the mixture around each marshmallow, forming a ball. Roll the balls in coconut and put them on a tray lined with wax paper.

Refrigerate until firm and store in a container. Then enjoy as a sweet  treat!
