Good, but a bit too sweet - and generally I don't complain about that! I think I might like it more with nuts rather than coconut. I don't have a food processor so I crushed the crackers by hand and mixed it all together in the baking dish. That seemed to work out all right. I also used semi-sweet chocolate. Not only did I not have unsweetened on hand, but I also thought that unsweetened would be too bitter. The chocolate is my favorite part and definitely not what's making it seem to sweet...
