Yep, these really DO taste like Mounds bars! They're delicious, and the recipe makes a pretty big batch (if you cut them small), so they're convenient for including in candy gift boxes for holidays and special occasions. I found this recipe difficult to make using plain chocolate chips. The chocolate didn't melt smoothly, and the coconut was difficult to dip. When I used candy quality chocolate instead (and melted it on a double broiler instead of in the microwave, which I originally tried) they turned out much better. Also, I found that the smaller you cut the squares, the easier they were to dip. I kept mine under 1 square inch.
