This is not for any dieters! They are addicting - in a good way of course. :) I think I got this off a Mounds coconut package - but don't remember for sure. I have made these at Eastertime for a lot of years. I also like to make them at Christmas time and tint the filling with either red or green food coloring. I am being general on the time. It will probably take a little less time.
