Everyone loved these, they were easy to make, and really good. The only thing is that I'm Canadian, and I don't know the conversions too well, so I put a little much of the condensed milk, I'd s...

I have a recipe very similar to this and I thought I could add a few suggestions based on other readers comments. Instead of rolling in additional coconut, roll in powdered sugar - works great ...

I made these with chopped pecans and very little brown sugar. In fact, I think the sugar can be omitted entirely! I froze them overnight before serving -- they're fine right out of the freezer o...

This is a wonderfully different candy treat. If you're tired of serving the same old Christmas confections, try this! My first batch was really good. The second time, I experimented: for some te...

The canned milk made this recipe runny. I think the next time I make this recipe will use only half of the canned milk. and cut the brown sugar in half. It is quite sweet.

After reading the reviews, I added less condensed milk; deleted sugar; rolled balls in crushed VANILLA WAFERS. This is a healthy treat.

This is a delicious recipe and is soooo easy and quick to make. But I agree with the other reviews - watch the amount of condensed milk - add it gradually until you have the right consistency. ...

A tip to make these much easier to roll is to dip your fingertips in a little bit of water as needed and you will be able to roll really easily!! To sweet, use less sugar! but very good.
