              Thank you so much for the great instructable. For anyone looking for measurements I used 2 small cartons of strawberries, half a bag of Ghirideli melting chocolate, 1/4-1/3 bag of coconut, and maybe 20 marshmallows. Other than the strawberries running out I was surprised how much coconut we used after I chopped it nice and fine.

              Just made a test batch. They not only look good, but taste great as well! Thanks!

              Dipping into coconut works just as fine as sprinkling some over.

              I have a good question though.. How do u hold these lol. It was a little messy when I held it lol

              Nrgdragon (author)1054152014-12-14

              hold it on the side and bottom at the same time like in the picture(you may need to click the picture for clarity)

              ysabet (author)2014-12-14

              Cute and quick! Thanks! Also, just a thought-- if you are (like me) allergic to coconut, you could replace the coconut flakes with a good Divinity recipe.

              Just to let you know "a strawberry IS NOT A BERRY"... But a banana is!
