Would not make this again.
I have been searching for a "snowball" candy recipe and this one seemed close to what my husband described to me. I don't know if I didn't add enough icing sugar,coconut or what..but mine turned out to be flat,messy,gooey,sticky messes. I had put them in the fridge to set up for over an hour before rolling them into balls but they flattened on the cookie sheet and were very difficult to roll into a ball shape. Any ideas? His ex use to make them and they are his favorite..thanks! 1 star

I have made these many times through the years. Try adding pecan or almond pieces.( Makes them taste like almond joys). Also think chocolate is easier to work with using parrafin rather than shortening. 4 stars

Instead of solid shortning, use parafin in the chocolate. Save the fat. 5 stars

These were ok but way to much coconut. If I made again I would cut the coconut in half. And what a mess to make 2 stars

Hi, these are excellent if you love coconut. My only suggestion is to try them with dark chocolate chips, otherwise they were excellent and super easy. Thanks! 5 stars

My mother made these all the time when we were growing up - she is now 76 - and she used to put a marachino cherry in the middle of half of the batch. Then she used to dip in the chocolate chips but used wax instead of the Crisco. Must have been cheaper!! She also used toothpicks to dip with instead of a fork. I haven't made them in a long time but they are on my list to make for neighbors. 5 stars

This is a lot better if you use 14 oz of cococut and get rid or the confectioners sugar. I have been making these this way for years and I got it from my exhusbands grandmother. I don't think that a 70 year old lady would steer in wrong. Try it this way. 3 stars
