"These bars are easy and taste very good. If I make them again I think I'll use a different topping recipe. The butter seemed to float to the surface; I had to blot the bars with paper towels. It tasted good but just didn't look right."

"I have made this a few times,all GREAT Ratings..The (ONE) thing i did do was to line the pan with foil and spray it with oil before baking the Graham cracker crumb bottom. It makes it so much easier to cut it."

"If you love chocolate, graham crackers and coconut, then this is for you. Warning: They are very rich but oh so good!"

"I was disappointed for such a simple recipe. It is too sweet. I would eliminate the sugar in the crust, since it did not dissolve with two bakings. It also never set and had to be scooped out. I put the remainder in a pan and boil and stirred until the sugar dissolved. Pour in into a 8x8 pan, then cut it into candy pieces."

"I like these a lot! Super easy to make, and the chocolate sauce is really good with the brown sugar in it. I'd definitely make these again! I rated them four stars only because they're a little gooey and difficult to handle."
