I can't say exactly, they looked so good, I got started, and discovered that my almond flavor was DRY, so I used vanilla. Then I discovered my chocolate chips were butterscotch! However, they turned out just great, as Butterscotch, Coconut Snowballs!

YUM! These are addicting! I love them. This is a very easy recipe to make, and the cookies are really good. I didn't change anything. They look real pretty too! Thanks Karen :-)

These were so delish! The only problem I had was finding the m&m baking bits so I used kissables as suggested. The little kisses faded in color when they were baked and so ther weren't as pretty as I would have liked. The taste was still amazing though. I will def make these again as they are a nice alternative to the usual cookie flavor but using something other than the kissables.

Oh boy, am I glad I tried these. Super yummy. I could not find the mini m&m's at any of the area stores, so I used the mini nestle's choc. chips and they worked just fine. No pretty colors, but still really great! I got 4 1/2 dozen cookies and baked 10 minutes. I will be drizzling with a bit of chocolate to jazz them up a bit. Thanks for a great one. ~Messy44

Very good cookie! This recipe is identical to Macaroon Kiss Cookie recipe (#35585). The only difference is that this one uses m & m's. I will definately be making this one again! Thanks Karen.

I had these on my cookie trays last year and they will reappear until I'm told otherwise. I don't see that happening! DD#1 did request that I cut back on the M&Ms a bit. Otherwise, this is in the permanent keeper file! Thank you for sharing and I apologize for the long over due 5 stars!

These looked so fun on the Holiday cookie trays! I didn't have M&M bits so used regular. They were easy to put together but very sticky. And baking time was right around 9min. for mine - they burn easily. Thanks!

This is a good recipe, however, when author described it, I thought it would be a cookie. To me it tasted more like a candy. It was good, and I wouldnt change anything about it, just wasnt crazy about it. However, it does have a colorful appeal and would really spruce up a christmas cookie tray.

When it came time to make these I had to borrow oj from my neighbor, substitute white chocolate chips for the m&m's, and make do with less coconut than called for. I added the chips when first mixing them because it didn't make sense to me to add them to the chilled dough. I rolled them in sprinkles since I was short on coconut. They still turned out great. Wonderful texture and flavor.
