These delicious coconut and walnut bars require no baking. They make an easy dessert and are a great treat. Just as good as ones you can buy!
These are okay. i had a big party & made four different versions of this cookie to see which was the most popular. This recipe was the only batch that had leftovers. The crust never got hard and the middle was too rich and powdered sugary tasting. - 18 Sep 2004 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

I followed a previous reviewer's advice of using graham wafer crumbs instead of coconut (my husband is allergic too). I used margarine instead of butter, 1 cup of graham wafer crumbs, and corn syrup instead of the egg. For the filling, I used more like a tablespoon of vanilla. TASTE the filling before spreading it over the base!! If it tastes too much like powdered sugar, add more vanilla! I did just that, and it saved the filling. I doubled the ingredients for the chocolate topping and it was the perfect amount to cover the whole pan. The end result tasted a little different than I'm used to, but I DID have to omit the coconut. Next time, I think I'll add a little cocoa to the base so there's more chocolate flavor, but they DID turn out really tasty. Thanks, Shirly! - 15 Mar 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
