This recipe combines three of my favorite foods—peanut butter, coconut and chocolate—into one mouthwatering dessert. It's very rich and filling, so a small piece usually satisfies even a real sweet tooth.—Mrs. Sanford Wickham, Holbrook, Nebraska

"I recall making these bars and I'd added 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats and increased the amount of semi-sweet chocolate chips to 1 cup, plus I added 1/8 cup all-purpose flour! I greased and floured a 13x9x2" baking pan. I recall keeping the baking time at 15 minutes for

the crust and 15 to 20 minutes for the bars. This is another recipe which has been a tasty addition to the TOH recipes I've used! Thank you for sharing your recipe! delowenstein"

"I substituted Reese's baking pieces for the chocolate chips. They turned out great! The bars are thin so if you like a thicker crust I would recommend doubling the crust ingredients."
