Moose Farts - easy peasy no bake cookie balls from Canada

Moose Farts - easy peasy no bake cookie balls from Canada

If you were wondering why you are hearing so little from me here and on my social media channels ... After an eye laser surgery, I just could not see clearly and the gaze was just exhausting. Since the blogging, so writing and taking pictures, let alone baking at all fun πŸ™. But now it's okay, at least slowly, and that's why I'm back today with a quick and easy recipe without baking.

For   The Culinary World Tour , which deals with Canadian cuisine in July, I searched for a suitable recipe and found what I'm looking for on the great blog from Newfoundland. 

Moose Farts, which means Elk-farts, are so easy and fast prepared that you can make them great with children. And what kid does not enjoy making delicious cookie balls, which are also called elk farts?

From just 6 ingredients (melted butter, sweetened condensed milk, vanilla extract, finely crumbled biscuits, grated coconut and pieces of chocolate) that are easily mixed, after a short rest in the fridge, just make small balls, which are then rolled into biscuit crumbs , 

Finished are really sauleckere cookie balls called Moose Farts. I took my copies with me to the agency. Of course there was laughter at first because of the cute name and then a great feedback in terms of taste. Especially the girls were totally excited.

Oh yes, Graham crackers are used in the original, which of course I did not get here. That's why I mixed "normal" and wholegrain butter cookies. That worked great and tasted.

Incidentally, I served the cookie balls on one of my favorite bowls by  TIZIANO Design & Emotions , where you can even present "moose-farts" very appetizing   πŸ˜‰. Apparently, these bowls are particularly suitable to serve treats with curious names ... on such a shell (only in smaller) I have already photographed the Dammsugare (which means vacuum cleaner). Favorite bowls ...

I am (almost) sure that I contributed the recipe with the most curious name to the round of Canada, though ...? Let yourself be surprised, what has come to my dear Blogger colleagues so culinary to this beautiful country: 

  • 1 tin of sweetened condensed milk 400 ml
  • 75 g of butter
  • 1 ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 300 g wholegrain butter biscuits and / or butter biscuits, in the original Graham crackers (+ some biscuits, finely minced to roll)
  • 200 g of grated coconut
  • 200 g Chocolate Chunks (Whole Milk or Dark Bitters)

  • Melt the butter and allow to cool slightly. Then stir well with the sweetened condensed milk and the vanilla with a whisk.
  • Crush the biscuits in a blender to make fine crumbs. Alternatively, you can treat the biscuits in a freezer bag with a rolling pin. Add the biscuit crumbs (except for the rolling, together with the grated coconut and chocolate pieces to the butter condensed milk mass and mix everything thoroughly.
  • Put the mixture in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. Then use your hands to form balls out of the mass, which have a diameter of about 3-4 cm.
  • Now roll the balls in the remaining biscuit crumbles.
  • Store the Moose Farts in a refrigerator until they are ready for consumption.
