This turned out pretty good, just very sweet. I split it into 3 flavors, coconut, peanut butter and mint. I had good feedback on all. I could have used more coconut (I used one full bag of sweetened coconut flakes) for the coconut 'eggs' though. The mint tasted like a junior mint, i just put a tablespoon of peppermint extract in, and the peanut butter ones tasted like buckeyes. I had to freeze the batter for a bit before making the balls ( I couldn't shape eggs well enough so I just made balls) becuase it wasn't hard enough to and just stuck to my hands. I then had to freeze it again prior to dipping in the chocolate and one more time after dipping in chocolate. I couldn't find an easy way to dip (I used a corn on the cob holder and jabbed it in) so mine weren't completely covered, there was a small hole in the top where I was sticking them to coat. It worked out OK though becuase you could see the flavor they were. All in all, making the filling was easy, but freezing took most of the day. It turned out pretty sweet but I liked them and no one complained! They were gone by the end of the day and I had a few people ask for the recipe. I would make again!!!
