I love all those ingredients put together! Does the cream cheese get hard while refrigerating? Thanx for sharing! Diana

Do you eat them cold? What do you have to keep leftover ones in the frig?

Lisa Nicholson, the pineapple gives these treats a little bit of sweetness and a tiny bit of moisture. I suppose you could use any other kind of canned fruit. You would probably want at least maybe some honey in there to sweeten the cream cheese

Renee Rogers and Judy Holtzscher, I wouldn't freeze these as the cream cheese might separate and get a little grainy.They can be made three to four days ahead and kept in an air tight container. The coconut may change a little. They never last at my house past the first day. You could make the cream cheese mixture and refrigerate it a couple of days ahead. The day before you are serving them, it might be a good activity for the kids to sit at the table and make the balls and roll them in the coconut. That would give them something fun to do and give you some help with the food prep :-)

Hi! Hoping someone can help? I just made this and I've waited 2 hrs. The mixture is very runny. Too wet to make into balls. Did I make it wrong somehow? Or do I need to let or sit in fridge longer? Thanks for any help..

Did you drain the pineapple really well? It shouldn't be runny at all. I would put some more cream cheese in it and maybe even a small amount of powdered sugar to make it more manageable. Sorry it is so runny. I press the juice out of the pineapple
