Sorry to say, this was terrible. Suspected it could be bad when I looked at the quantities of ingredients - 14 oz. of flaked coconut and 14 oz. of chocolate morsels? Big chewy mess. I've reviewed the ingredient list and process and I didn't miss anything . . . lucky my 19-year-old nephew could laugh about his birthday "cake."
