  1. Easy, easy, easy, & GREAT TASTING, TOO! I took a hint from a previous review & combined the condensed milk & the coconut (I love coconut, so doubled the amount!)! Also used chunkey peanut butter, & thought these were some of the best bars I've made! Great recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup cooking game]
  2. I found this recipe browsing around and thought it sounded so yummy. I made this for a bake sale for my work and they sold so fast! these are delicious and SO easy to make. the only slight downside is having to wait for them to cool before you get to eat them! cutting them when they're chilled is easier than when warm.
  3. I made these this morning before work..very easy to put together tho I did mix the sweetened condensed milk with the coconut before spreading on the base. Past experience has taught me that this is far easier then trying to evenly pour the milk over anything. They are excellant. Easy & really cure a sweet tooth.
  4. I made this on 4/8/08 for "Spring PAC 2008" and I can't believe that I'm the first one to make this.The only little problem that I could see with this recipe was, that it wasn't clear about the cool/set time. I didn't know if this should have been left to sit on the counter or put in the "fridge",so I put it in the "fridge".To me there wasn't enough coconut. ( just a personal preference) The amount of peanut butter to chocolate was just perfect.And to me the hardest thing about this recipe was to have to wait 4 hours to taste it. This was a very good recipe,and will be made again.Thanks for posting and, "Keep Smiling :)"
