You are very very hungry and it’s not really time to eat, but hey you need a pick me up. Well this won’t just pick you up, it will slap your taste buds around and put a groove to your afternoon.

Think Mounds bar meets Reeses with a whim of graham cracker goodness lurking about.

It’s simple, I adore chocolate, peanut butter and coconut. So it only makes sense that once in a blue moon I’m able to throw my favorites into one gorgeous indulgence.

I like the traditional graham cracker crust layer, topped with the a chewy coconut and finished off with a luscious layer of chocolate and peanut butter. I know, mmm.  So just go on, make a batch, brew a cup of coffee or tea then sit back and love it.
