I just made these and they are great! They remind me of pecan pie YUM. I took the advice of some and cut down the brown sugar but I think I will follow the recipe exact next time (we like rich desserts). I found the best way to do the crust was cut up the cold butter then mix it up with my hands. For those who say it was a gooey mess then I think they just didn't bake it long enough. They should come out of the pan just like a bar cookie. I will definately make these over the holidays.

These came out WAY too sweet and WAY too mushy. I was very disapointed and definitely will not make this recipe again.

I haven't made the Yum Yums yet but I am sure it is one that I have been looking for for years. I will get back and tell you. Bye for now Sorry I didn't get back sooner but these were the Yums Yums I was looking for. My husband is so happy. His mo used to make them and no one in the family could find the recipe. Thankyou Dorothy

This is a great recipe. It worked out really well, although for my taste I found that the top was just too crispy for me.

This was an interesting recipe. The crust was quite moist and the topping was decent. I wasn't expecting this to be as "bready" as it was, however, it was a nice surprise. I will definitely consider making this again.

No stars if I could. I actually went back and re-read the recipe to make sure I didn't screw it up. These went straight into the garbage. Gross. Way too sweet, very mushy (and I cooked mine an extra 15-20 mins!) and the sugar never cooked! It was still crystalized and crunched in your teeth as you ate them!! We didn't even finish our servings. What a waste of lovely ingredients.

These did not turn out at all the bottom was dry and crumbly and the top was mushy I could not even get a whole one to come out of the pan I threw them all in the garbage needless to say I won't be trying these again

Excellent bar recipe when the weather gets cooler and something moist and gooey is needed with you favorite hot beverage. I didn't use the coconut, but used 1 cup of chopped pecans. It tastes like pecan pie cookies. My husband said, "You can make those again...anytime."
