These were very good.Tasted like an Almond Joy candy bar.Chewy and moist.The only thing I would change would be to sprinkle an additional cup of chocolate chips on the top,1 cup wasn't enough,I was tearing the cake as I tried to spread it.

I took Divinemom's advice and used more chocolate chips. It worked out just fine. Also, instead of flaked coconut I used the sweetened-shredded type. This may be why the squares turned out so gooey. And that's just fine with me! These babies are great.
