I have made them two times in two weeks and am going to make another batch this week. I took them to the nurses at the heart clinic and they loved them and wanted the recipe. Also, put them in the goodie boxes for my friends, with my peanut butter fudge and chocolate fudge and everyone loved them. Thank you so much for this recipe.

The next time I would not include the marshmallows, they didn't add anything to the taste and the consistency would be better without them. I also added a 1/2 tsp of almond extract. Really nice combo with the coconut & cherries, and I didn't use the green cherries, I used all red. Really good!.

Made these for the guys at work and was sure they wold not like them, that I would even like them. I thought they would taste like fruitcake. They do not. Everyone loved them. There were none left. They said they tasted like seven layer cookies. A bit messy but like the idea of no bake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from these are GREAT! these are GREAT! so easy and FUN to make. big hit at thanksgiving! only suggestion, when shaping the balls, they got very sticky after 10-15, so i just rinsed my hands and left them a little damp when they were too sticky. worked great! loved this one!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Making these is a VERY messy process. Making these is a VERY messy process. I wouldn't suggest this for kids because it's so messy. These were good, but not something you want to eat more than one of. We brought them to a party and said that they liked them, but didn't eat very many.

It tastes too sweet for our family but the kids love the process though it is very messy and sticky. You need to be prepared to do a bit of clean up thereafter. I would suggest using fresh coconut flake if you can find them.
