My mom used to make them every year for me and my dad. When she tired of the process, she handed the recipe down to me, which I've tweaked just a bit. They are a MUST for the holidays. My family, friends and coworkers begin asking for them the first of December. They take some time to make, but well worth the effort. The "cooking" time is the time the coconut mixture sits in the refrigerator to firm. The times listed are estimates as I've never really timed the process. The servings are an estimate and vary on drop size.
