Coconut Lime Bliss Balls

These bliss balls taste just like coconut lime pie, with the zesty citrus cutting through the rich coconut in that perfect, unique way. I came up with this recipe late one night, half expecting it to turn out wrong, but the resounding opinion from all my tasters was that these were a total winner.
