These cookies have been in my family for years, but the recipe is varied slightly. We use 1 1/4 cup of graham cracker crumbs instead of the nilla wafers and we just melt the butter in the baking dish on the stove then sprinkle the crumbs on top once it's melted (and I use the smaller baking pan one size smaller than the 9x13). Also, I use 1 1/4 cup coconut since the nuts and chocolate chips make it so rich. If I have milk chocolate chips laying around, I'll do half milk chocolate and half semisweet. Also - don't skimp on the condensed milk - I tried making them a couple times with "generic" condensed milk and they were terrible. Pay the extra dollar for Eagle/Borden/Carnation. Perfect for get-togethers - everyone asks what's in them after their eyes roll in a flutter.

These are one of my favorite all time cookies! I always make them with either 1 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs or 1 1/4 cups saltine crackers. Both versions are great. I also am very generous with the coconut as I love coconut!

My husband says these are the "bomb" and my daughter and I both think they taste similar to Almond Joys. Twists to the recipe: 1. Spray pan with non-stick coating - I also used a 9x13 casserole dish 2. I used about 16 graham crackers and crumbled them in my food processor (turned them into dust). I supposed you could also use chocolate graham crackers. 3. I used a 16 oz bag of whole pecans, put them into a plastic bag and smashed them into crumbles using a meat mallet.

Excellent. I added more coconut; I always add extra coconut to recipes that call for it. They were everything they should be: sweet,chewy, crunchy, chocolate-y.

These were good and even better when you know how easy they are to make. Hubby loved them. I also used graham cracker crumbs and a little more coconut, althought that bring it very close to the hello dollies 1 recipe here. I will make again.

Easy! Delicious! Economical! Rave reviews! Thanks for this great, versatile recipe. Haven't had this before, have now made it 3 times in a fortnight, my co-workers love it. Made it as per recipe the first time (minus pecans, nut allergy) - fantastic! The second time I subbed dark chocolate for the semisweet, and chopped glace cherries and Craisins for pecans, and the third time I subbed white choc for the semisweet, and glace cherries instead of pecans, and added an extra half a tin of milk. I wanted a recipe that was easy to make from items I'd have on hand, and this is it. Thank you very much for sharing!

I have used this recipe for years and it is always a hit. I love to add white chocolate chips as well. Always a crowd pleaser and so easy to make!!!

Its hard not to love these cookie bars, especially if you are a big fan of coconut. They were so easy to make. I may embellish next time with butterscotch or peanutbutter chips, in addition to the chocolate chips..
