“If you have a bit of time, then these are well-worth the time to make, kids just love these. Although this recipe makes nine balls, my advice to you is you better double or even triple the recipe, cause these are so good, you are going to need to! Prep time includes boiling the carrots”
1hr 5mins
9 balls

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Set oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Grease a 13" x 9" pan.
  3. Have 9 large marshmallows ready.
  4. In a bowl, combine 1 cup soft breadcrumbs, sugar and cinnamon.
  5. Cook carrots in water until soft; drain well, and mash.
  6. Add the butter, brown sugar, nutmeg, salt, grated orange rind, chopped pecans and 1 cup bread crumbs or cornflake crumbs to warmed mashed carrots; mix thoroughly.
  7. Scoop a heaping tablespoon of the carrot mixture, and press a marshmallow into the center; cover with the carrot mixture to form a ball.
  8. Roll each ball in crumb mixture, and space balls in a greased baking pan; with a toothpick, make a small hole on the top of the ball for the marshmallow and the air to escape.
  9. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
  10. Cool 5 minutes before serving.
