    Punky Julster's Note:

    This is a Christmas time or anytime favorite in our family. The recipe has been passed to me and we have been making these for 40 years in our family! If you are going to give them as gifts, place wax paper between the stacks of balls. This recipe will make about 100 balls depending on the size you make them.

      I grew up eating and making these as "Coconut BonBons" I am glad I found this recipe so I won't have to search for mine this year! Thanks for posting.
