      These are sublime! I like to make it in a smaller pan so the bars are thicker. It takes a little longer to cook.

      This was great! I used dark chocolate instead of semi-sweet, so should have adjusted the sugar to made it sweeter. But it was still delicious

      Chocolate and coconut bars - a perfect combination for wonderfully rich bars! I picked this recipe to use up some pantry items and I am glad I did, but in doing so I made a few subsitutions that didn't seems to affect these bars by using only white sugar for the sugars mentioned. I also used chocolate chips (12 oz) for the chocolate and used 1 cup of silvered almonds for the pecans. I wasn't sure what chocolate ganache is except that this resulted in a very chocolaty filling and wasn't sure about step 11- if I was supposed to pour the ganache onto to the crust before setting or let it set in a bowl in the refrig. I let it set in a bowl and then spooned it on the filling (but I think I should have done it the other way around) - either way it resulted in a delicious bar that anyone loving chocolate and coconut would love. Thanks for sharing this decadent! bar dessert!
