    UnknownChef86's Note:

    These taste like the inside of a Mounds bar! If you like, drizzle or dunk them in melted chocolate for a Mounds wannabe! The amount made is a guesstimation, as I don't remember exactly how many cookies this makes.

      I was expecting a mounds which to me is much more like a macaroon but that isn't what I got. Not that these are bad cookies just not what I was looking for. I found the dough to be crumbly and a little hard to roll into balls and the extra coconut didn't stick to the balls so I found that to be more trouble than it was worth.

      These are great cookies! Slightly crispy on the outside , chewy on the inside. I'm sorry I made only half a batch (not enough coconut for a full batch)They mix up in no time and are very easy to make. They are addictive little buggers! Thanks for posting this U.C.!! *ETA Made again decorating with a skiff of melted semi sweet chocolate ... YUM!
