These decadent biscuits are entirely no-bake and very easy to prepare. They look festive and are ideal as a Christmas treat.
My batter kept falling apart when I tried to do it per the recipe so I put the mixture into a mini-muffin pan - really pushed it all in then used the handle of a wooden spoon to make a hole in the middle for the chocolate. I then put the whole pan into the fridge for an hour or so to cool. Turned over the pan and they fell right out! They turned out really good - got lots of compliments, the biggest one being that they were all gone in one night! They taste fantastic and is now my go-to desert. Yummy! - 21 Apr 2011
my husband doesn't eat cherries so I put strawberry jam inside mine! I also used the mini-muffin tray and it works wonderfully! Fantastic recipe and everyone loved them. Tastes like coconut ice but better. - 12 Jul 2012
I made these for a work cookie exchange and they were a hit. I used the recommended amount of butter and they were just fine. I think the amount is necessary to solidify in the refridgerator and hold the cookies together. I did not use the optional cherrys. I also did them with both unsweetened and semi-sweet chocolate and both tasted good. If you love mounds bars you'll love these because they taste just like them. I was asked for the recipe by several people. We all wondered if maybe adding an almond would result in an Almond Joy. I am pretty sure it would. I recommend doing the recipe as stated and you will have complete satisfaction. - 29 Dec 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
