These cookies are delicious and VERY easy to make! My girls loved helping me make them. They had a lot of fun helping in the kitchen making cookines for the family for Christmas. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!

I really enjoyed these cookies, and they were really easy to make too! All my friends came back asking for more.I give this recipe 5 stars. I absolutely loved them. Also if you add some nuts or something it gives it a scrumptious crunch. They're positively wonderful!!!

These are great. I used coco pebbles instead of rice cereal. They worked wonderfully. The chocolate and peanutbutter combination was very tasty.

These are great! I tried something different with second batch: I melted chocolate and dipped them. It was good. I'm a chocolate lover so I had to do.

Just don't put the coconut in, that's what I always do. Just take out the things you dislike and substitute something you do. Don't just say the recipe is bad!
- A Baker

Would not make this again. This is an absolute disaster the coconut absolutely ruins the taste of the peanut butter. It also leaves a icky after taste in your mouth. This is not something I would recommend.

Because I was creating for a work party, I multiplied everything except the honey by 4. I only used half a cup of honey. But they turned out great and went so fast I nearly didn't get any myself. Great recipe!
