Toasted Coconut Haystacks Recipe

I love making all sorts of cookies and candies during the holidays, but this year, I just don’t have all the time and energy it takes to do it. That is why these goodies are perfect.  They might seem time-consuming, but you can be done making these in less than 20 minutes. Sounds good to me! If you are a coconut fiend, then you will love these. More importantly, the people you give them to will love them also – ’tis the season of giving!  When it comes to ingredients, you don’t have to stop with toasted coconut. I bet these would also be great with toasted pecans, walnuts, or peanuts. Get creative and have fun with them!
