    Baby Kato's Note:

    We love sweets and this one does not disappoint. I got this recipe from a local paper 10 years ago. A lovely bittersweet chocolate crust with almonds and coconut filling. Toasting the coconut creates a nice nutty, dark, deep flavor. Sounds like a chocolate bar doesn't it. Yummy!

      These are really good and has just enough chocolate, but not too overpowering. I coarsely chopped the almonds, but I think next time I will chop them more fine, DH said there were big chuncks and he would prefer smaller. Other than that they were perfect. Made for Holiday PRMR December 2009.

      Another one of your recipes that I made for a group I host, & since they're to be served along with a number of other sweet things, I was able to get 24 bars from this recipe! GREAT TASTING THINGIES, & now if I can just hold off until tomorrow, I'll have some left to serve the group! Loved your recipe & will keep this one around, too!
