Recipe Notes

* Dried coconut comes in a variety of types:  desiccated, shredded, grated and flaked.  Because there is very little difference between them, these types of coconut can be used interchangeably in recipes.

What could be better cookie treat than graham crackers, chocolate, and marshmallows?  When my children were young, you would ask for these cookies all the time.

These cookies remind me of the chocolate pinwheel cookies.  I believe this cookie recipe is an older Pillsbury Cook-Off recipe winner.

This classic treat is always a favorite with children and a crowd-pleaser.  My children loved this recipe when they were young.

    Can you use shredded coconut instead of flaked?

    Solid no bake go to recipe! And omg delicious!! I doubled the recipe and left out 1/2 c of sugar, they’re still sweeter than I’d like. The butter equation was given in a range so I opted for less than more only to end up with a dry bowl of crumbs that wouldn’t press into bars so I melted the additional butter and mixed it by hand. Because the butter was warm, the recipe came together more easily so next batch I will combine everything while the egg mix is still warm to the touch. The bars were very good but lacking depth of flavor so I added chocolate drizzle on top. I sent half the batch to the freezer. The other half we ate!!

    My aunt used to make something very similar and she put chocolate frosting on them. They were called secret squares. I have a question. Don’t the eggs scramble?
