These are good and super easy to make. I cooked mine for 28 minutes and they were a little over done.

Ok so I am an obsessive baker and usually adore working for hours on a meal's grand finale... however... today I was not at all up for that! I was feeling sad because I figured any "quick" recipe would end up lacking in flavor and finesse... until I stumbled upon this recipe. This must be the easiest, quickest, and most convenient dessert I've ever made that really delivers on taste and presentation. I did as others suggested, and upon taking it out of the oven, sprinkled semi-sweet chocolate chips over it. I cut up the bars, allowed them to cool slightly, then carefully removed each square with an appropriately sized spatula. I placed them on a fancy cake plate, sprinkled with some toasted coconut and voila! Dessert is beautiful, delicious, and... DONE!!! Thanks for a fabulous recipe! I'm looking forward to playing around with different additions (nuts, candies, etc...)!

Wow these are amazing!! Deliciously chewy and caramelly/butterscotchy. 3/4c milk chocolate buttons mixed through were delish. Thanks for sharing!

Heavenly. I just took them out of the oven 10 minutes ago and 1/2 the pan is already gone. They kinda want to fall apart while warm but even so, they are delicious! Thanks for the great recipe!!

OMG! These should be outlawed. I am expecting company this weekend and wanted to make something that they would all enjoy. Too bad I did quality control (tasted 1). I will have to keep them in the freezer until just before they arrive and hope that I can keep out of them until then.

My husband loved these. He said, they tasted like an old fashioned brown sugar pie with coconut. I used a 9 x 13 inch pan, cut them when warm, and removed from the pan when cool. I had never tasted a bar like this. Thanks for posting.

Okay, I'm not a coconut fan but my husband is so tried this recipe. I followed the recipe as is and the bars came out chewy and surprisingly good (for me). I especially like the corners because they have that extra crunch. With a glass of milk...perfect dessert or snack. I actually used an icing spreader to take the bars out of the dish because of its flexibility and it came out fine. I will definitely make this again. Thanks for posting.
