    Linda's Busy Kitchen's Note:

    This recipe is from my sister. Our family requests them every holiday season, and it wouldn't be Christmas without them! They are a great addition to your cookie trays and cookie tins to give as gifts to the neighbors, co-workers, friends and family. I hope you will try them, as they truly are fantastic! Word of warning::: These go fast, so make plenty!!! To avoid burning my hands from the hot mixture, I pick up the mixture with a piece of saran wrap, then squeeze it together with my hands and form the log, then roll the log in the coconut. Works great!

      These were delicious! I made them into balls, instead of logs. Sorry just had visions of my brother calling them christmas "logs" with a snicker! The taste was amazing!

      Easter was extra special this year with this addition to the dessert table. Everyone grabbed some as soon as they walked through the door, so by the time I was ready to leave, I got to bring home and empty plate :) They were much enjoyed!
