    In microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips on High 30 to 60 seconds or until chocolate begins to melt; stir until all chocolate is melted and smooth. Pour over cooled bars.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    If you don't have coconut creme-filled chocolate candy, chocolate chips could be used instead.
  • tip 2
    To speed up the cooling process you can let the dessert cool for 10 to 15 minutes at room temperature and then refrigerate for 30 more minutes.
