This is a moist and decadent dessert. It's a semi-homemade recipe, but no one will know you didn't slave in the kitchen!!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

These ooey gooey chewies are what happens when a brownie and a cookie are mixed together. When you first bite in you taste the chocolate and crunch of the pecans. Next, the coconut flavor comes through. Then you get down to the layer of chewy caramel. They're very rich and decadent.
