      These ARE awesome. I made these last night, and I doubt I will ever know how well they freeze, because I will never get them away from my family to freeze them. How good are they? Well all I know is that we are a family of four and yet I had 12 people in my kitchen lined up with plates for a piece of this. We weren't expecting any company..hmm. BTW I also omitted the coconut and pecans.
