These were indeed "simple and delicious"! I brought them to an "End of the World" Party (12-21-12) and they were quite a success (translated to: none were left). Will definitely be making these again. Thanks for posting the recipe, Kittencalskitchen.

This will be on every candy tray I make from now on!!! I dipped them in melted Nestle dark chocolate morsels and used finely chopped pecans because that was all I had. Heavenly!!!

We added these to our 2010 holiday trays. They were wonderful. We added an almond to the center, rolled the coconut mixture around and dipped in chocolate. Then we topped with a little bit of toasted coconut for decoration. They looked and tasted great. Thank you for sharing.
