These were definitely sweet, but super yummy. My sis-in-law is a vegan, so I used GF/DF graham crackers and almond butter as subs and they turned out really good! I had a hard time rolling them in the coconut, so I just put about 4oz of the coconut in the dough and rolled them in powdered sugar instead!

I thought these were okay but super super sweet and not at all orangey...I think some orange extract would help to up the orange taste.

I originally loved the idea of these balls, however I must have done something wrong because I found the mixture to be WAY too wet to even contemplate rolling into balls and I didn't want to add more powdered sugar as it was sweet enough already. I also couldn't really taste the orange at all. Maybe this recipe was just not meant for me.

I think I must be in the minority, because I know from several different recipe sites and blogs that these are very popular. However, I found them to taste only of orange and nothing else. I assumed they would have some vanilla flavor as well, and the orange would be tempered by the powdered sugar/butter, but no. I let them sit covered in the fridge for a few days too thinking the flavors just needed to combine, but still I could taste nothing but orange. I didn't care for these at all because of that and won't be making them again, sorry.

These are definitely easy and different for a holiday tray. Super sweet and I couldn't really taste the coconut, but a nice easy addition. Thanks.

I'm making these for a cookie swap. They are very yummy and unique and easy. I used real butter b/c that is all I had. They are very yummy. This is a very sweet cookie, but I have a strong sweet tooth so I enjoyed them. I'm going to try freezing them I will leave an update on how that goes.
