Nice and easy., Member BlondieBelle

An eays to make and nice treat. I used a mix of raspberry and blackberry jam (did not have enough raspberry left), and they turned our just fine. There is quite a lot of coconut on top so next time I might consider mixing some of it with the jam. The whole house smelled lovely of raspberries and coconut for hours:)
