Peanuts‘ Linus may not like coconut candy, but I sure do. That’s why one of the highlights of my holiday season is the Christmas cookie plate that my family’s friends, the Brinklow family, give us every Christmas. In addition to the best decorated cookies I’ve ever had (I wish I had the recipe!), the Brinklow family Christmas plate is heavy with homemade fudge, peanut butter balls, and, my personal favorite, chocolate covered coconut balls. I don’t have the Brinklows’ recipe, but this one looks like a pretty close substitute.
