I found this recipe about 25 years ago in a magazine. I realize it isn't a "from scratch" recipe, but sometimes you want something a bit out of the ordinary even though you are pressed for time. Its been a very popular dessert with my family for picnics, BBQ's, etc. and always a success at bake sales. It tastes like those chocolate covered coconut candy bars :)
