The first time I had these I thought "These should be called I've-Died-And-Gone-To-Heaven Bars!" The recipe is from long time family friend and neighbor Matel Viall... and one of my very favorites!

These were okay and make a decent snack cookie, but I'm not all that sure i liked the raisins in them. I expected the combination of ingredients to be much better than it was. I made them for my Christmas tray this year and my friend, who is my official cookie taster and who is always honest and who always tastes the cookies befoe I say anything, felt the same way I did and said that although they were good, they were her least favorite of all the cookies I had made. I might try then again one day without the raisins and maybe add extra coconut and/or chocolate, but i wouldn't make them again for something like a Christmas Cookie tray.

Very good bar!! I love all the flavors, not to sweet. I soaked the raisins for about 30 minutes, then drained them well. I used 2 1/3 cup brown sugar and 3/4 cup chocolate chips. I will be making this again. Thanks for sharing this recipe Impera.

I just made these a few minutes ago, and they are PERFECT! They're chewy, smell incredible, taste like heaven, and I'd be willing to say it's the best cookie I've ever made. Thanks!
