This was good. Make as directed except I used chocolate graham crackers. If I was going to make it again however (and I will) I would half the butter (crust was soggy with it), double the coconut, and forget the peanut butter in the chocolate topping. I really wanted something like the coconut bars the Cuban's sell in the cafes in Miami and this didn't have enough coconut.
