Dairy Isle Recipes



  • 3 Cups Sugar
  • 1 1/4 Cups Dairy Isle Evaporated Milk
  • 3/4 Cup Melted Dairy Isle Butter
  • 3 Cups Large Rolled Oats
  • 12 Tbsp Cocoa
  • 1 Cup Unsweetened Fine Coconut + 1 1/2 Cups to Roll the Balls in


  1. In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, Dairy Isle butter and Dairy Isle Evaporated Milk. This mixture will foam up while boiling, so a larger pot is recommended.
  2. Boil together gently over medium heat for 5-6 minutes or until mixture reaches about 225 -230 degrees F on a candy thermometer. Don’t start timing it until the mixture is fully at a rolling boil and don’t stir the mixture while it boils.
  3. Mix together the oats, 1 cup coconut and cocoa.
  4. Add the boiled mixture to the dry ingredients until well combined and chill well in the fridge until mixture is able to be shaped into 1 1/2 inch balls. The mixture will be quite soft and sloppy while it is still hot. It will not firm up until it is very well chilled to approximately room temperature.
  5. Roll the balls in additional coconut.

Makes about 4 dozen. These should ALWAYS be stored in the fridge to maintain the soft yet slightly chewy texture. They tend to be too soft at room temperature.
