I have been making these for years and giving them to my family, neighbors and friends for Christmas or Easter gifts. I also have added peanut butter instead of coconut amd chilled for several hours and rolled into balls or shape into eggs and chilled while melting candy coating. (it's fun to use colored candy coating at Easter} The coconut taste just like Mounds Bars.
