Chocolate Macaroon Squares

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

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.
