      I made this recently, and there were no pieces left after my family discovered them. I even made a second batch, partly because they were such a hit with my family. But also, I wanted to test a theory that the butter content in the dough might be a bit high (i.e., the dough was so gooey that there was a thick layer of dough on my hands after rolling them into balls). So I decided to make a second batch, reducing the amount of butter to 1 1/2 tablespoons. Also, my coconut was so fresh that it was "sticky" and didn't adhere to the candy very well. So I also left my coconut out overnight to dry out a bit. The second batch turned out well. It was just as tasty without the extra butter, and the candy was still soft but with a much less gooey outer texture that held the coconut much better. And only a very minimum amount of dough on my hands after rolling them! So, if I were to make this again (and I most likely will), I would continue to reduce the amount of butter to 1 1/2 tablespoons and definitely let the coconut dry out for several hours. But all in all, this was a good candy recipe that I'm glad I stumbled onto. The recipe makes plenty , by the way. I didn't count the number of pieces in the first batch, but the second batch gave me 92 pieces (not counting my "taste tests").

      I made this recipe two weeks ago and have half of it left. Usually peanut butter snacks go quickly in our house. I don't think I will make this one again.
