SO DECADENT! It's sweet chewy and delicious but you can't have too much at once because it's just SO HEAVY. I love it because it's not your average boring cookie. TIP: one wrapped package of graham crackers (one box usually contains 2 wrapped packages) yields exactly 1.5 cups when crushed into crumbs! Read More

I made this recipe and followed to the letter. After it had cooled off I cut it squares and set it in the fridge. Well I went to take the bars out and not only did they stick horribly the tops separated from the bottom. They tasted so good I didn't want to waste anything so I took the squares rolled them into balls and rolled them in coconut (or nuts or confectioner sugar) They are awesome. When your handed a lemon..... thanks for a great recipe Read More

These are amazing!!! Super easy super yummy super impressive when you make them for an office function:). Would also be great crumbled over vanilla ice cream. I typically don't like using the microwave but I took the advice of others before me and melted the chocolate and peanut butter that way - one minute stir 30 seconds stir and you're done! Read More

Very yummy. Some other reviewers commented on the crust being too greasy so I used 2 cups of graham crumbs. I made the rest as written and they turned out perfect. Read More

just awesome I just added a few hazelnuts to make a change from walnuts. I froze the cookie bar in order not to eat it too fast and it is as good as fresh. I recommend this recipe to all the sweet tooth Read More

Being in the uk i used Mc Vitie's digestive biscuits in place of the graham cracker crumbs and added a small amount of cinnamon to it and it worked fine.I also uesd 2 cans of condensed milk as 1 didn't seem to cover over the whole of the biscuit and coconut base and 2 covered it perfect.I baked it for 30 minutes poured the topping on and left it to cool down for 2 1/2 hours and then i put it in the fridge for another hour.My kids absolutely loved these cookie bars and so did my mum.Thank you for a quick easy yummy recipe Read More

They were easy delicious and the three layers gave them a nice look. They might be good with chopped nuts sprinkled on top. Also you can melt the chocolate chips and peanut butter in the microwave. Read More
