Reviews for Cherry Coconut Bars
"These come out great and have a great taste too. I have been wanting to try this, since it has been a long time since I had these. And they are really as good as I remember. I let them set for awhile before cutting, and they came out perfect. Yummy."
"I think these cherry coconut bars were easy to make and tasted good & chewy, I baked them the full 25 min. The only problem I had was the bottom crumbled a little. How could I firm up the bottom?"
