Thanks for the recipe. I have them cooling in the fridge but I think maybe the mixture was too runny (in Canada our cans of condensed milk are a little smaller so I guesstimated slightly smaller quantities of everything) I might try freezing and then dipping into the chocolate and hoping for the best :)

I sliced the cherries in half and made bite sized ones. So good!

These look super good. When do the vanilla and semi sweet chocolate come into play though? Wouldn't the chocolate make these look a little more brown?

The chocolate and vanilla can be used to dip into or drizzle over the coconut mixture after they form up. Some people preferred them without the chocolate.
