Whenever I taste these rich, delicious layered bars, I think of my childhood. My parents were missionaries in Thailand, and Mother was able to get these common ingredients there - the squares reminded us of the candy bars back home. -Pam Tesh, Lexington, North Carolina

"These are absolutely delicious! My husband, who is a big fan of coconut,loved them. The only change I made was to substitute whole milk for the evaporated in the icing recipe. I will be making these again!"
