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.

Nevermind if you can’t find Sno Ball snack cakes at the store. These brownies are even better.

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

How To Make Sno Ball Brownies:

  • Melt the butter and unsweetened chocolate in a small saucepan over low heat.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the sugar.
  • Stir in the eggs and vanilla.
  • Stir in the flour and salt. Notice there’s only 1/4 cup of flour. These brownies are wonderfully rich and chocolatey!
  • Transfer the batter to an 8-inch pan lined with aluminum foil.
  • Bake for 40 minutes.
  • Spread the marshmallow fluff on the brownies while they are still warm.
  • Process the coconut, cornstrach, and pink food coloring in a food processor until the coconut is evenly pink.
  • Sprinkle the coconut over the brownies and press it into the marshmallow fluff.

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.

      Childhood food memories are the best! I’m going to have to look for Sno Balls the next time I go to the store. Thanks for letting me know they are still available. 🙂
