So good! This recipe needs some small changes though. I have been baking for many years, so have learned to go with my instincts when trying a new recipe. I cut out the 2 tsp. of coffee granules, as it would be way too strong and bitter. I also cut the icing sugar to 2 cups, and I added two tbls. corn syrup as it gives an extra mellow sweetness to the frosting.Whenever I make frosting for cakes or squares etc., I always add corn syrup to give it an extra rich and creamy taste. Use a 9 inch pan, fits just right.However if you want very thin and dainty type squares,use a 9x13 inch pan. Just great! Also, they would be better without the melted chocolate on them, don't need it really. They have all the flavor and sweetness without it.

What a HUGE disappointment! I raced all over town to get the ingred's for this...and it ended up in the trash. It didn't tell you what size pan to use, the mocha layer was bitter, and 15 mins was not near long enough to chill in the fridge before adding the white chocolate. Some recipes I botch I keep just for myself to nibble on after deciding not to serve to guests. Not this one. Hope others have better success.

This is a graham cracker crust with frosting. The coconut threw off the coffee taste, and the white chocolate made an already really sweet bar SUPER sweet. Nobody finished theirs. I might try it again sometime without the coconut and white chocolate though.
