This is actually really good. I love that it isnt too sweet. And it is moist!

just wondering if this recipe freezes well. need to make squares for my sons wedding reception.

I started making these before I realized I did not have any coconut, so I just left it out. These were good and not too sweet.

I save 5 stars for only the most phenomenal of dishes. While not phenomenal, this is really darn good. I will definitely make it again and again...

It's not too sweet and not too bland. IT'S GREAT!
