they turned out quite... almost chewy? 

If they get chewy the were cooked too long. But I believe "almost chewy" sounds ok.  Wink

Glad you liked it.

Oops I guess that's what I did wrong lol. They still tasted really good though! Just like a coconut chewy candy. Actually my Dad loved them so much...he took the rest (that I didint pack up for Christmas gifts) home!

I did end up rolling them in a mixture of powdered/granulated sugar since I couldent find the crystals. Next time I'll try not to cook them so long though  Grin

Should they be refrigerated once they're done, or can they just be kept in an airtight container once they're done?

I am walking 12 hours straight for my local Relay For Life event.  [a href="http://main.acsevents.org/site/TR/RelayForLife/RFLFY11MW?px=16690269&pg=personal&fr_id=30095"]Please support me![/a href] I'm only 40% to my goal! =0(

I guess airtight is ok for about 5-7 days. But don't worry, they never last so long...
Merry Christmas!

I just tried a batch of these and a batch of the Brigaidaeros (sp?)
The chocolate ones are wonderful! Thank you so much!!
But my coconut kisses, I don't think they turned out right...
They're very chewy. I'm not sure if it might have to do with the coconut I used.
I had to search everywhere to find unsweetened dehydrated coconut and the flakes are very large. Maybe I should make them smaller?
Or did I maybe just cook them too long? I was worried if they didn't cook long enough the coconut would be crunchy.
One positively yummy addition I did make was after trying rolling them in sugar and not liking that so much I ground up milk chocolate and almonds and rolled them in that. yum. Grin
Thanks again for such wonderful recipes and for all the great advice and tips!
