Fractal subsets of R-n with a highly regular structure are often constructed as a limit of a recursive procedure based on contractive maps. The Hausdorff dimension of recursively constructed fractals is relatively easy to find when the contractive maps associated with each recursive step satisfy the Open Set Condition (OSC). We present a class of random recursive constructions which resemble snowflake structures and which break the OSC. We calculate the associated Hausdorff dimension and conjecture that an a.s. deterministic exact Hausdorff function does not exist.
