Or maybe you will be sorry, because you will eat them all by yourself and then have terrible guilt for the days to come. But they are worth it, they were so easy, and sooo good! I got these from Lauren who got them from Brooke, so thanks to both of you, these were gobbled up! I didn't use the coconut, but only because I forgot to mix it in, next time I will use it for sure.
