If you are a fan of coconut and like the taste of a macaroon these little coconut cuties are for you! They are rich, almost like a coconut snowball, sometimes I will just eat a half, but they really hit the spot and are amazing served as a sweet treat, afternoon snack or anytime pick me up! You can make these in a blender or a food processor, but I suggest a food processor because when using a blender you end up losing a lot of the ingredients while trying to scrape it out! 

I store mine in the fridge for about 10-14 days and they stay good. As mentioned, they are rich, so you can choose to make the balls smaller or cut in half! Enjoy!
