Reviews for Chocolate Coconut Bars
"because I know these will be fantastic. I have chocolate condensed in the house so going to try that. will report back"
"I used 7 oz of chocolate chips, as a reviewer suggested, and the frosting turned out great. We love coconut, so these bars were a hit with my husband. I thought they were easy to make."
"I did something wrong cause the coconut filling wouldn't spread and tring to spead it caused my crust to break up, so it ended up just globbed in the middle. But the flavor was awesome!! My husband took a bite and said "oh wow!" Definitely will try again and see if I can get it to look right this time!"
"If you like "mounds" l-like bars-you"ll love these! Easy!"
"This is really good but it's a must to like coconut. I think it would be just as good to put milk chocolate chips on the bars after baking and just let them melt. The recipe calls for a 7 oz candy bar and that's really about 4 Hershey's bars. Then you need to wait until the bars are completely cooled before frosting. Very time consuming. I'm going to try it with the choc chips next time. Good luck."
