These look amazing! Do you have to have coconut oil or will safflower oil work? Can't wait to make these for snacks.

    Thank you! As far as a replacement for the coconut oil, safflower oil I have heard can replace coconut oil, but I haven't tried it. I will try it and report back to you! The replacements I have tried is palm oil and cacao butter, those both work well in the recipe. Please let me know how it works for you!

I made these tonight and they are delicious! I ended up buying coconut oil (I had never used it before so I didn't realize it was a totally different consistency than other oils) and everything came together great. Thanks for the recipe! :)

It's 7 a.m. here and wanted a little pick me up this morning for my workout.. I was craving something sweet but didn't want to cave in and buy something processed and bad for me. These are so simple and turned out amazing! Thank you so much, now when I have sugar cravings I will go for a ball of goodness. I really appreciate this recipe and will share your blog with my friends :)
