It is a fancy cookie bar! Took the advice of others and melted the chocolate chips on the hot cookie then topped with toppings. Also made a second pan with almonds instead. Tasted like an Almond Joy candy bar!

These tasted wonderful! I did have a problem keeping the topping on like the previous reviewer, but will try the suggestion when making them again. Definately an easy, tasty treat!!

These were the easiest cookies to make, and they were a big hit. My husband was upset that I took them to school and didn't save some for him. I used a packaged sugar cookie mix instead of refrigerated cookie dough. I didn't measure any of the toppings and I added butter scotch chips. I would love to make these again.

The sugar cookie and chocolate chunks are the best part

The topping of chips, coconut and nuts fall off the cookie! I would strongly suggest melting chips only on crust first and spreading them like a frosting and then sprinkling the coconut, nuts and some chips on after. This way the melted chocolate holds the topping on. I also drizzled some melted chocolate chips over the bars for some extra hold!
