These little treats are as cute as they can be and delicious, too. A lady from my garden club shared this recipe one Christmas, but they're good for any occasion. They're a hit with both kids and grown-ups. -Sandi Pichon, Slidell, Louisiana

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 24, 2014

This is a great cookie! I choose this recipe because it was similar to one my grandmother made that was a no-bake stove top cookie with rice crispies. Tasted just as good and didn't require standing over the stove and stirring constantly. As with the other reviewer mine was VERY sticky so I simply put all the coconut into the mixture and scooped the cookies with a cookie scoop. Then dropped then on a cookie sheet that was lined with a Silpat. Easy, went together quick. Hardest part was waiting for them to cool so we could eat them!

My first time making this and it turned out great. It does get sticky but worth it. I didn't put the extra coconut on, it really doesn't need it.
