These were good. I made them without the coconut. I found after they set out for abit, they got really squishy and weren't as good as they were when they were cold. Easy recipe to do though.

These bars were excellent but i made a few changes. I made my own chocolate cookies dough according to a toll house recipe for the bars, and i used only 1/4 cup of coconut. These were really good but I think i might sprinkle a little extra chocolate chips on top next time.
