Made in a Cookie Sheet, these make enough for a Crowd, 36 bars. Chocolate bars topped with Chocolate, toasted almonds and toasted Coconut. . . make these a definate Crowd pleaser. Great for Lunch Boxes, Picnics or Potlucks also. Note: photo is without Coconut on top, Its a personal Preference, I like the Additional Nuts and Coconut on top.
