    KristinV's Note:

    I have very fond memories of these as a little whipper snapper and remember them as the only good thing about my Uncle's cranky ex-wife :) Super easy and heaps tastier than rum balls (personal opinion)

      Wow! I made these this morning and they were amazing! In the US, we don't have Marie's so I used short bread cookies and crushed them up instead. I am thinking that these would be delish with some walnuts in the mix next time! Thanks! Made for ZWT 5 - Jammin Java Jivers.

      These are tasty lil' buggers!!!! Since I'm in the U.S. though, and don't have access to the Marie's biscuits, I decided to use Nabisco Nilla wafers thinking that that would be a fairly good substitute. And it was! I had trouble converting it, but zaar members came to the rescue! I used 3 cups crushed wafers (about 3/4 of a 12 oz. box), a 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk, and the rest according to the recipe. The only thing I screwed up was that, I didn't have enough coconut. I had just a bit more than a cup, and didn't realize that you need 1 cup PLUS plenty extra for rolling. But no matter! I rolled a few in the last I had, then rolled the rest in chopped pecans! :) Wahlah! :) Next time I make these, and there WILL be a next time! ;) , I may sneak a lil Kahlua or Bailey's in there, too! And maybe a tad of vanilla extract to make up for the wafer that probably didn't have as much flavor as the original ingredient. Thanks so much!! :) Made for the ZWT5! :)

      I used Arrowroot biscuits for these as we live in a small town with not a lot of choice. I made these for our Grandaughter's wedding. Fast and easy to make, not to mention how yummy they are. I made 58 small balls. And I could have stood there just popping one after another into my gob!!! Very addicting. Thank you KristinV for sharing. Made these for ZWT Zingo for The GroovyGastronomes.
