    Joan Randall from CAPE CORAL, FL

    What a wonderful, easy recipe ... and to think it all starts with a cake mix. The mixture of coconut, chocolate and pecans made for great eating and very little effort. I think the sweetened condensed milk is the "secret ingredient".

    More Chocolate Bits Would Be Fine

    Sue Emory from MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA

    This was a pot-luck hit. I dutifully followed the recipe, limiting the chocolate bits to 6 oz. thinking perhaps it would be too sweet to include more. But the result was not too sweet and a full cup of chocolate bits would have been fine as well.

    have made this using a chocolate cake mix and once with a yellow cake mix and both were very, very good. I personally like the yellow you really get to taste the coconut and chocolate chips.

    I, too, like the idea of bar desserts, rather than drop cookies. It takes less time and the results are usually beyond yummy!

    They satisfy my chocolate and coconut cravings. Yummy even with almonds instead of pecans. I'm planning on making them with a white coconut flavored cake. Then sprinkling pastel colored coconut on top for Easter.

    I used a german choc. cake mix and it was out of this world. With choc. and coconut, which are my favorite ingredients in any thing. This has got to top it all. It gets a no. 5 all the way with me. My friend just thought it was really good also.
