MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 24, 2011

I would call them coconut bars. They are quite thin. Easy to make.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 10, 2010

Not liking sweet coconut, I would not have made if I hadn't been clearning my cabinets of older ingredients. I had everything needed, made them, served, and retrieved recipe from waste basket. These bars are great for make-ahead and impromptu "tea time".

Toffee bars turn out so quick and taste so good, my family makes them any time we have all the ingredients. They're delicious and definitely a keeper.
