This recipe was very easy, and came out quite well. I did add extra coconut. They freeze very well too.

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.

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.

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

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

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!
