These bars taste almost like Mound chocolate bars, for a change of taste, you could replace the chocolate chips with butterscotch chips, or any flavor that you desire.


  1. Set oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Butter a 13 x 9-in baking pan.
  3. FOR CRUST: Mix together, the crumbs, brown sugar and the melted butter.
  4. press gently into the bottom of prepared baking pan.
  5. Bake for 10-15 mins; remove from oven.
  6. FOR TOP LAYER: Combine the coconut and the milk.
  7. Gently spread over the crumb crust.
  8. Return to oven, and bake for another 15 mins.
  9. Remove from oven, sprinkle with chocolate chips (any amount desired).
  10. Allow the chocolate to melt, then spread gently, evenly all over the bars.
  11. Cool, cut into bars.

These bars were a hit at a BBQ! I used half chocolate chips and half buttersctoch chips, just for fun. They were delicious! I will definitely make these again.

I made these for DD who had some friends over and I was trying to use up some coconut I had. My coconut was finely shredded and I only put 2 cups in as my family doesn't have a lot of experience with coconut and 2 cups looked like more than they could handle. I used about 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips. It was late when I took them out of the oven so they were still pretty warm when we dug into them. Wow! Melted chocolate on coconut! DD, DH, DS (the pickest!) and I loved them. They were just as good the next day. I will be making these again. Any one who likes Mounds Bars will like these. Thanks for a new dessert.
