My family loved this recipe. The cake part wasn't crumbly but spreadable. They thought it was like fudge brownie with coconut on top. I left out the nuts and just added extra coconut. I am going to share this recipe with friends. Read More

Rename this recipe. Yeah it's some kind of brownies with coconut goo on top. Very very yummy. I left out the pecans and added 1/3 cup extra coconut to make up for it. I used a cake mix with pudding and found the base was not exactly "crumbly" but more like spreadable like oh yeah did I mention brownies. Still five star good and the coconut topping added an interesting dimension to the uhhh brownies. Delicious. Hubby loved them too. Read More

These are great! Very easy to make - I did have to cook a little longer than called for and then slightly burned the edges. Next time I'll be more careful and take them out a bit before the center is completely set. They're definitely a keeper! Thanks for sharing Read More

I made these with a yellow cake mix instead of chocolate. The almond flavor was great! Read More

Great bars! Next time I will probably add mini chocolate chips to the cake mixture to add a little more to it. I also drizzled bittersweet chocolate on top it went well with the sweetness of the coconut layer! Read More

These cookies were really easy to make. The cake mix makes a nice crust. I found them delicious and I couldn't stop eating them. My husband found them a bit too sweet for his taste but that was okay - more for me! Read More
