Shortie but Goodie: Coconut Snowballs

For whatever reason I wanted to try a no-bake recipe this season and ended up using this one I found at The Kitchn (because it looked pretty and I like coconut): http://www.thekitchn.com/recipe-coconut-snowballs-recipes-from-the-kitchn-181467

When I made the dough, I was a bit underwhelmed, because the coconut taste didn’t come through at all. My taste-tester and baker’s little helper said the same, so we had to do something about that.
