Crusty Booger Balls are an icky named, yet fun and tasty Halloween treat! They’ll dress up any Eerie Edibles Halloween Party table . . . You’ll Need
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
5 1/3 cups flaked coconut (about 14 ounces)
1 large 8-ounce package lime-flavored gelatin
1 cup ground, blanched almonds
1 teaspoon almond extract
In a large bowl, combine sweetened condensed milk, coconut, 1/3 cup of the unprepared gelatin, almonds, and almond extract.
Mix well with a large mixing spoon or rubber spatula. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and chill for about an hour or until mixture is firm enough to mold in your hands.
Scoop teaspoon or tablespoons full and shape into various-sized booger balls (Kid Sized boogers, Ogre Size Boogers, Troll Size boogers, etc!) Place them on a baking sheet, lined with a sheet of waxed paper or parchment paper.
Place a second sheet of waxed paper on your work surface and pour remaining unprepared lime gelatin on the center of the waxed paper to give a “Runny Snot” Effect, like it was “sneezed on” a big Ogre! Roll each ball in gelatin to coat well and create a thin outer layer. Then place back on the baking sheet. Refrigerate boogers for an hour before serving.
