Coconut and caramel are layered on top of a graham cracker crust, then topped with a rich chocolate and peanut butter frosting. These bars are so delicious, be sure to have some friends over so you don't eat them all.

Wow I wasn't expecting something this good for so few ratings. One thing I did different was melt 20 individually wrapped caramels like I saw on another recipe on this site into the condensed milk to give it a more true caramel taste. Read More

I make these all of the time. They're fast easy and someone always asks for the recipe. A suggestion: Be sure to use unsalted butter otherwise the crust is too salty. Read More

I make these bars all of the time. People seem to really like them. If you do not like coconut this is probably not the recipe for you. Read More

We make the easier version of this every Christmas. Skip the melting and the peanut butter and just sprinkle on the chocolate chips onto the coconut before baking. Read More

Jessiker....when you put your crust mixture in the pan it helps to flatten the crust using a flat metal spatula. Really flatten the hooey out of the crust before adding in the other ingredients. Read More

These are ridiculously good. They were so easy to make but pack an amazing taste and look fancy. Eventually I had to take them to work to get them out of the house so I wouldn't eat them all! Read More

I guess I can't leave well enough alone... I started out making these exactly as written but just before pouring the chocolate over the top I though to myself..."self I bet some toasted almonds would taste real good under the chocolate" so I did what I commanded and chopped and toasted some almonds. Now these are great but I am wondering if next time I should use almond butter. Will be processing almonds next time. Maybe even some for the crust. By the way they are great with the almonds!
