How To Make Graham Balls

Work and study schedules are getting hectic and my time to do recipes is getting narrower. Thanks to my super wife who is always there to lighten my work load. She did this graham ball recipe for me. She was the one who took pictures and did the process.

400 grams crushed grahams
400 ml condensed milk
M & M Milk Chocolate or other brands of the same kind
Plain or colored marshmallows
Powdered dessicated coconut


1) Place crushed graham in a mixing bowl. Add condensed milk slowly while mixing until a dough like consistency is achieved. Electric hand mixer or the more robust KitchenAid can make this work easier and more enjoyable.

Remember, the more condensed milk will make the mixture softer until it becomes fluid, while less will make it harder until it crumbles. Adjust the recipe to your liking. Extra Grahams and condensed milk on hand is recommended.

2) Get a marshmallow. Top it with M & M chip and wrap with generous amount of milk-graham mixture. Roll on powdered desiccated coconut while the surface is still moist. Let it sit for while and the coconut won’t adhere. In case you screwed, a dab of milk spread on surface will solve the problem.

If desiccated coconut is not available, freshly grated can be used as replacement. I recommend a rare ripe coconut. I never know if I am using the right term. It is what we know as alangan in Tagalog. The stage before the coconut skin turns to brown and the meat is still soft for grating.  Expect a shorter shelf life.  Fresh coco is prone to rancidity.

Marshmallows topped with M&Ms. Don’t let them stay in your hands for long. It will melt in your hand before reaching your mouth.

Graham balls filled with marsh mallow and M&M. You may experiment with other fillings such as fruit jams, peanut butter, almonds, pili nut, chocolate chips, fruit chunks and eve vegetables.

    1. tart style ( mango, pineapple, guyabano, rambutan )
      buko pie style ( fresh buko )

      I am not sure if empanada/siopao style would work ( menudo, bola bola and asado ). We’ll never know unless we try.

      Please update me about your results!

  2. Can I use powdered milk instead of coconut? Kasi yung sa school namin parang milk gamit nila eh. Thank you in advance para sa response.

  3. If you like a Oreo graham ball you can just add crushed oreo in the graham mix and roll the marshmallows..
    an idea of my friend which she sells 6 pcs. for 50 pesos but it’s already in a tapper ware and presentable.

    1. “tuyong niyog na giniling” mostly from “alangan”. It is safe to use the word “dessicated coconut” when buying from any market. The term is already popular.

  4. i love your graham ball, awsome thanks for the knowlegde , my son really love it .

    1. I’m sorry! I never know yet how long it will last. There is rarely a leftover every time. We are storing it in refrigerator if there is any.
