"I have had this recipe saved to make for the holidays for the good part of 2 years, solely due to the great picture by averybird. I made these to give out as holiday treats for our mailman and our neighbors on each side. I made them exactly as directed, crushing animal crackers for the wafer crumbs, and using a 9x9 pan for the mixture. I'm not sure if I kept them in the refrigerator too long to chill, but they came out very dense, almost fudge-like (they got a little better at room temperature), and they were SO sweet (it could be just me, I don't eat as many sweet things as I used to). They are very pretty, and thank you for posting them, but I haven't heard a thing back about them. I'm not sure they are our thing... Thanks anyway!"
"We are in the middle of a snowstorm here, and hence these little bars seemed apropos! Plus they look fabulous! The frosting was a bit too sweet for my taste, but I like a thick layer of frosting to give the 'snowdrift' effect. Next time I will cut back on the powdered sugar. A great addition to my 2008 Christmas gift trays along with Recipe#265772 and Recipe#26849."
"I baked up a storm yesterday and these were the last of the bunch, so good and so easy to make! I used colored marshmallows and they look so pretty! I think my diet is in serious trouble!"
"These little treats are simply divine. I made them as part of a sweet tray for a catering job and they got rave reviews from all. They were a hit! Thanks for posting Gerry! Made for Aussie Swap :)"
"I feel so bad! I made these for Christmas and forgot to review! These were the most popular thing on my holiday trays, in fact I have just reminded myself of how good they are and it IS snowing so i think I better go make some Snowdrift Bars! Very easy to make and just a treat to eat."
"These are fabulous! I made 1 and 1/2 times the recipe and used an 8x11 pan. We had these on Christmas day and everyone loved them. They get better each day so you may want to make them a couple days before serving...if you can wait that long:) Thanks Gerry for these wonderful bars!"
"This was a wonderful and easy recipe to make! We love these and am sure to make them again. I doubled the recipes and made in a 9x13 pan and it worked great. Gerry suggested I make 1 1/2 recipes of frosting to cover and it was the perfect amount."
"Hooo, this is sweet!! Almost too sweet for me, but SO good! And so nice and easy, too. I think I may have whipped the icing a little too much, too -- it's quite light and fluffy -- but very yummy nonetheless!"
"Don't wait for Christmas to make these fantastic bars...these little gems will impress your guests any time of the year. The vanilla wafer crumbs makes a perfect crust that compliments the coconut....great flavors. This is easy to make too. Thanks for sharing ANOTHER great recipe, Gerry999. "
"Made these today so Santa could have some with a glass of milk when he stops in. They are so good I already ate two squares just while cutting them in the pan. I used a 7 x 11 brownie pan, and made half the frosting recipe, made the frosting too soft so next time I will make firmer, so that it will be the same firmness as the bars. The bar itself is slightly chewy, ( could have been the cooking time for the sugar egg mixture) but this is how I will always do them. A great bar, and now I just ate another, Santa has nothing on me!"
" These are awesome Gerry. They were so easy to mix up and look so pretty, perfect for the holiday tray. I did crush up the Nillas in the food processor.I did put a bit less of the frosting on the square but that is just a personal choice. I can't wait to serve this delightful little treat to friends and family. This recipe will be kept close at hand. Thanks again Gerry!"
