oh joy bars

Recipe by

I only had a brownie mix for an 8x8" pan, so I prepared ONE mix for the bottom; put the filling on top; and prepared the other mix to pour over the filling. Increase cooking time to 40-45 minutes, if you do that. Also, I LOVE coconut, so I was a bit "heavy handed" with it, probably using closer to 1 1/4-1 1/2 cup. For nuts I used walnuts because that's what I had on hand, and again, used a bit more than called for. Adding more of the ingredients didn't affect the end results! Just made them yummier!
