    After reading the comments, I used half bittersweet and half milk chocolate for the centers, then dipped them in milk chocolate instead of the coconut coating. The coffee flavor was surprisingly strong, but still good! I might try one of the other flavorings mentioned in the comments next time, but will definitely make again!

    I also used some Bailey's Irish Cream in mine instead of the coffee. Ummm, good

    I thought this was incredibly easy to make but while I was waiting for it to thicken I tasted it and thought it tasted bitter so I added about 1/4 - 1/2 cup confectioners sugar while it was still possible to easily stir the mixture. This really helped offset the bitterness and also helped it thicken extra quick.
