"I didn't think there was anything special about these, but since several people asked for the recipe I guess I was wrong. I lost patience with dipping the balls, so I spooned the chocolate onto some of them."
"These were good. I'm not sure the coconut is necessary....I couldn't taste it in the recipe. Were very easy to make and good for all ages."
