  1. This looks delicious, even though I can’t stand the taste of raisins. I will try this recipe at home, but I will make sure to switch the raisins with cranberries. They are pricier, but the taste is so much better it is easily worth it.

  2. Oh yum! I wonder if it’s possible to add just a little peanut butter. I think these have great potential to play with, as well as the recipe as is. Thanks!

  3. That is such an easy recipe for anyone to make , thanks. This one will be pretty easy to remember because its got my two favorite ingredients – chocolate and coconut. I like eating just shredded coconut sometimes, and garnishing it with shredded coconut will give it a great look as well.
