Coconut Mound Balls

Recipe by Marsha D.

My DH always gets a container of these every year during the holidays from one of the ladies in the office at one of his clients. I asked him to get the recipe from her and now I have it. OH! I love them! Thought I would share the recipe too.

Very easy to make. I did cut recipe in 1/2 though as I didn't need that many. I am interested though to see what people think, as I think you might be able to cut back on the powdered sugar and still have it tasting great.
