Excellent, very easy to make and can be done very quickly and at a moment notice. Family and Friends loved them and it is my Pot Luck Desert.

What a mess! I don't know how people can say these were easy! The "dough" was very sticky and hard to roll into balls. I kept refrigeration it but that didn't help. Dipping them in the chocolate was hysterical. They would break apart while the excess chocolate was dripping off. Then they would stick to the fork so I had to give them a little push with my finger which ruined any success I had had. Never again!!

Very easy to make and not runny at all. Bring the butter to room temperature- do not microwave. This will make it runny and loose.

Easy to make and delicious. Easier to work with if coconut mixture is kept chilled. Will make again.

Very yummy, veryy messy but, may get easier with practice and a real double boiler. I think maybe less sweetened milk bc they are so sweet, the SCM has 220g of surgar in the can, wow. I used the xylitol confectioners sugar for half, unsweetened coconut, and that woked great! Still a bit too sweet, so i sugest less sugar or less SCM and they might even be kind of healthy:)
