Recipe by Chef 495452

These are so addictive and so yummy! My sister got the recipe when she was in elementary school and as a family we have made sure to keep up with it, especially now that all 3 of us girls are married now. They are a favorite of many people in our family and even coworkers. Try them, they take hardly any time to make, and the best part you don't even "cook" them. Cook time is refrigerating.

OMG!!! My sister and I used to make these when we were little girls! We got the recipe out of a "for Kids" type cookbook that we used to "cook" out of... same recipe title and everything! Sister now makes them with her little girls! These really are very tasty and we only made them with coconut. Was going to post here for safe keeping and you saved me the effort! Thanks for posting!
