Tomorrow might be America’s Independence Day, but let’s go rebellious and Canadian with a tasty no-bake treat called Moose Farts.

That’s right, MOOSE FARTS. With a name like that, you know it has to be good.

These are apparently a Newfoundland treat. They bear some similarities to “magic cookie bars,” but these are in a distinct ball shape.

I think they’re perfect for a hot Arizona summer. No need to turn on the oven or use tons of fussy ingredients! Moose Farts are something kids and adults can enjoy. The moose… not so much.

Moose Farts are an easy, no-bake treat out of Newfoundland! If grinding your own graham cracker crumbs, about half a standard Honey Maid box will give you the perfect amount of crumbs to include in the balls and to roll them in.

  1. Are these freezable? Thanks.

    • Judging by the ingredients, I would think they would be freezable, but I have not tested that myself. I suggest making them and freezing a small portion to test? I should note that they do keep well in the fridge for days.
