"These are so tasty! My aunt made them rolled in peanuts, mini chocolate chips and she even left a few plain for me. They were all fabulous. I also thought they might be yummy rolled in toasted coconut!"

"I made this recipe "again" for my hubby's birthday/Valentines Day and shared them between his office and mine. A huge hit and no leftovers. An hour seems to be sufficient for cooling and setup time. The next time I make these, I will try rolling them in toasted coconut."

"I made these for a youth group meeting, and they were a hit! They were all gone, to the disappointment of those waiting at home for some . ;) I didn't change a thing, except I didn't leave the balls in for two hours- I didn't have that much time, but they were fine even after just an hour and a half in the fridge!"
