    This is a wonderful candy! I prepared 2 batches of this. One exactly as given here. To the other batch, I added 1 1/2 cups of grated coconut and mixed it well with my fingers. Then, I rolled it into balls - got 12 of them. They look quite like chocolate frogs and are very tasty- very addictive! Thank you very much for sharing this:)
