I wrote earlier about my variation on this recipe. It is supposed to sit for a few days before serving. I tested one everyday, just to make sure they were all right. They are potent the first few days and do mellow out. This recipe makes plenty for friends and family to enjoy!

I forgot about making these this year until someone remembered them and requested the recipe. I used toasted coconut, ground almonds and dried berries soaked in brandy in place of pecans and raisins. I rolled them in organic turbinado raw cane sugar (from Trader Joe's).
