If you like the regular No Bake cookies you will love these as much or more, especially if you like coconut. Great Christmas cookies!

I made these for Christmas, instead of coconut I added in dry fruit. These were a huge hit and I sure won't be waiting until next Christmas to make them again. Thank you Gerry

I was looking for a quick and easy treat to whip up to bring to work to share with my co-workers during a staff training day and this was perfect. We all loved this. Anyone can put this together!!! Thanks for another great recipe Gerry. Made for the Billboard Recipe Tag Game.
