I made these to take to a "winter beach party" but ended up going to buy a key lime pie instead. I was so disappointed because they tasted great but I couldn't get past the fact that it felt like I was eating raw dough, as a previous reviewer said. My coconut wouldn't stick to them either.
Key Lime Coconut Snowballs
Use regular limes if the Key limes are not available. Unsweetened coconut is often labeled "desiccated" or "pulverized," and is often sold in health-food stores.
