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."

Amazing recipe and so easy. I could not find chocolate wafer cookies so I used Oreos instead. The chocolate drizzled over top made for difficult slicing though. But it tasted divine!
