Chocolate, Cherries and Coconut...three of our FAVORITE ingredients in dessert! These are easy and so yummy! Everyone who had them raved about them...thanks for a new recipe to make again and again!
I had difficulty finding more than one person who actually liked both maraschino cherries AND coconut. I should have known by the recipe, but these were way too sweet for me. They did make a festive looking addition to our holiday cookie tray for neighbors.
So easy, and ooey gooey good. While cutting these into bars to take to work, I couldn't stop cutting little pieces to sample myself. These are delicious little bars. They remind me of a seven layer bar, but the cherries are a wonderful addition. I followed other reviewers by combining the crumbs with the butter and then pressing the crust into a foil lined pan. After baking, I cooled to room temperature and then refrigerated overnight to set up. I let it sit for about 30 minutes before cutting and they came right off the foil. These not only taste great, but they are so pretty, especially for the holiday season.
I love chocolate and coconut, my hubby loves chocolate and cherries, so this was a winner in our house! I mixed the graham cracker crumbs with the butter and pressed it into the bottom of a pan to make a crust. I figured it wouldn't be as crumbly this way. I also added a lot more chocolate chips. Very pretty and yummy bars!
Very easy to make. I took these to share with my quilting group and everyone loved them and wants the recipe.
The whole family loved these. Thanks.
Delicious, quick & easy! I agree with others, mix the melted butter/margarine with the graham crackers, then pat into dish/pan before adding other layers. Yum!
A little soft and crumbly but maybe thats because I didn't bake it long enough. These were very quick and easy and look gorgeous. These would be beautiful during Christmas time if you tint the coconut green.
