      Wow! These would make a nice valentine gift for someone. That is if you can keep from eating them all yourself. I used shredded coconut because it is what I had on hand. I also used half bittersweet chocolate and half semi-sweet chips, also what I had on hand. These were fun to make and I might make them a little smaller next time so I'll feel less guilty if I eat 3! These are a very special splurge!
