I like to make these coconut-covered balls when the snow is flying outside. I've shared the candies with many of my friends and family members, an everyone loves them.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 31, 2009

"Very time consuming but VERY worth the effert. I wasn't sure about the dry milk but it does not taste like it is in there. It is solid to the touch and I thought it would crumble away. It does not. The taste is not overly sweet and I like that very much. They were loved by all."
