These are excellent with a little tweaking. I did not mix the cracker crumbs, sugar and butter, but rather melted the butter (I used a bit more than called for) in the pan in the oven, omitted the sugar completely, and just sprinkled the crumbs on top of the melted butter, pressed it down a bit, then let it bake. I almost doubled the coconut filling amount, using 3 1/2 cups of coconut (I chopped the flaked coconut in the processor to make it finer and more like real Mound Bars), sprinkled it atop the baked graham crust and poured 2 - 14 oz. cans of sweetened condensed milk over the coconut. Of course, it took much longer to bake (about 25 minutes). Once the filling set up, I just sprinkled the chocolate chips (tossed with about 1 1/2 Tbs. vegetable oil) evenly over it; put it back in the turned off oven and let the chips melt. I then spread the melted chocolate over all with an offset spatula (quite easy). I let it cool to room tempertature then refrigerated for about 2 hours before cutting into small bars (they cut very easily). They are absolutely delicious, especially with a hot cup of espresso.
