This recipe originally comes from Betty Crocker. I've been making it for years and it is delicious (and very, bery sweet. I often melt about 3 squares of chocolate for the top, since one isn't usually enough to cover the whole thing.

Not bad. Never been crazy about coconut in baking. Double the chocolate for the top layer.

I prefer these to the seven layer bars. I had these at a tea at a teacher's house, and begged for the recipe. They are now on my husband's top five cookie list. I used powdered egg whites instead of a raw egg (used equivalent of two) to decrease risk of salmonella.

This is our all-time family favorite. Sometimes I use peppermint extract in the frosting layer and add a little green food color. I also use unsweetened chocolate in the crust, and drizzled over the top, cuts back on the sweetness, but it is still very rich. I use egg substitue in the crust, I think that can prevent salmonella? We also cut them very small because they are so sweet.

I have been making this recipe for years also and is always a big hit. For the top layer I use 1 square of unsweetened and 1 square of semi-sweet or German Chocolate. You need at least 2 or 3 squares to adequately spread over the white/sugar layer.

A family favorite for many years. Still looking for a way to spread that final layer of chocolate...such a pain.

I first made this recipe last Christmas, for a family get-together, and they disappeared. I always omit the nuts, though, because I'm not a huge fan and a number of my family members are allergic. Also, even though 1.5 oz of chocolate for the topping seems too small, I've found that it still spreads over most if not all of the dish, and the thinness makes it nice and crispy.

This is also a favorite at our holiday get togethers. I read the recipe wrong the first time I made them and combined the final chocolate with the frosting. Pretty good and saves the final spreading step.
