I grew up eating all kinds of Hostess and Little Debbie Snack Cakes. I don’t even know if Sno Balls are still available, but they rank right up there among the most memorable snack foods. Chocolate cake is stuffed with white icing and coated in a marshmallow subtsance with lots of pink coconut.

You can’t beat a rich homemade brownie smothered in a gooey frosting with lots of coconut.

These Sno Ball Brownies are best stored in the refrigerator as the marshmallow fluff tend to get too messy at room temperature.

  1. When I was a child (in the 1950s), my mom would give me 10 cents every day to spend on a treat from the little grocery stock down the corner in Brooklyn. That 10 cents was spent on Sno Balls, Twinkies, and Devil Dogs. And, yes, Sno Balls are still available! If for nothing else, get them for nostalgia’s sake. But I think your recipe is a healthier version (goodness knows what’s in the commercial product). I still pick up Devil Dogs whenever I see them, stick them in the freezer, and eat one straight out of the freezer. They are like eating an ice cream sandwich.
