Would make this again.
Sounded good but coconut would not stick to the balls. I did use Crisco so maybe you need to use real butter??? 5 stars

Would make this again.
I made the recipe exactly the same as above but add 1 tblspoon of imitation Rum and they were delicious. I also put them in the freezer for a bit before serving them which made them not as mushy. They were a hit! 4 stars
