This is the grand prize winner taken from Taste of Home's Simple&Delicious magazine, Nov/Dec/07 submitted by Mary Ann Marino -- if your coconut strands are long I suggest to chop with a knife --- these are SO delicious!

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.
