ok and easy. VERY difficult to roll. Suggest refrigerating before rolling or adding something to make it easier (PB confectioner's sugar etc.) Read More

I made this with my Brownie troop... six-year olds. They all were able to roll these cookies after making the recipe with no modifications... except for substituting water for coffee just because they'd all say "Ewww!" To make rolling easier wash your hands every time the batter builds up on your fingers. I made them in January and had absolutely no problems with stickiness. I made the recipe with the coffee at home and it barely registered anyway. I have also done this adding a third of a cup of peanut butter and it is fabulous! The first time I used "Old fashioned" oats. It was fine but the oats stick in your teeth. Now I only use 'Quick" oats and the texture is much finer. The 5-star is from the Brownies. They loved it!

Amazing! I've re-named these my "Christmas mocha snowballs" I used VERY strong coffee and rolled some in cocoanut but it's a bit more tricky. I tried them for a friend of mine 3 days ago and have made them 4 times already. Thanks for the great recipe I think it will become a classic around here! Read More

This recipe was really easy no bake was right! I had everything in my cupboard for this yummy snack! I omitted the coffee in this recipe. I also only dipped half of my cookies in confectioner's sugar for variety. Read More

These were good and easy too. They were a bit boring so next time I might add some extra goodies like nuts or chocolate pieces to the mix. I wasn't going to roll them in sugar but I had to or else they would have melted in your hands! Read More

I halved the amount of butter and it was still pretty difficult to roll so I ended up refrigerating the batter and it was a lot easier. I then refrigerated the balls overnight and it was a hit with my friends the next day. Read More

These were fantastic tasting. The reason why i only gave it four stars though - they were really really hard to roll. I don't think I did anything wrong. They just weren't very stuff. Maybe chill them first before rolling? I'll try that next and maybe use stiffer butter/margarine Read More
