MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 6, 2010

i have been making these for years, since i first saw the recipe. i use milk chocolate chips instead of the semi-sweet. i also buy the bigger bag of coconut, and spread it on thick. i actually have a pan in the oven right this minute! :)

Excellent, yummy. My entire extended family loved them. I did cheat. I started with a box brownie mix for layer 1 and followed the recipe from there. The peanut butter in the frosting is very subtle.
