This contains no actual candy; it's merely a brownie-styled nod to a wonderful little candy bar.

my hubby ate 1/2 the pan!! So, this is a keeper. It's easy to make and the only change I made was NOT using parchment paper. I sprayed my baking dish with pam, baked it, cooled it, and put in fridge for 1 hr like it said. No need to freeze them at my house! they disappear too fast!! Also, I did end up mixing the coconut mixture with my hands (clean of course)
These get a 5 star rating from me! They are moist and ooohh so chocolaty!
WWWWWOOOOOWWWWW these were the BEST brownies I've ever eaten!! I made a batch to take to work yesterday and they were gone before lunchtime (only 6 people in the office). Soooo I'm making another batch tonight!
