This is a good recipe, but it is missing a few things. First of all, 1/2 cup of coconut is definitely not enough. I made these for a party, and I asked for everybody's opinion, and they all aske...

I used 1 cup nuts, 1 cup chocolate chips and 1 cup coconut. I also used butter instead of shortening. I've also made them using 1/2 chocolate chips and 1/2 white chocolate chips or butterscotc...

I made these this week and must say that they are the absolute best for sure and deserve more stars than I can assign. I did use 3X the amt of coconut called for and went with the margarine as...
