Top Review by SharleneW

These are a spin-off of your basic Rice Krispies treats. I found at first difficult to form into balls (even with very buttered hands and fingers!--I was washing and re buttering my hands after every couple of balls). What I ended up doing is buttering 9x13 cake pan, sprinkling 1/2 coconut in bottom, pressing down mixture and sprinkling remaining coconut over top. I quickly cut into squares, and then formed balls with squares (with buttered hands) and rolled in coconut again. They were a lot of work for "Rice Krispie treats", but I agree with Inez--the kids will love 'em and will love helping make the balls. I made them for a potluck and they are a lot more appealing to adults than "Rice Krispie treats".
