    I made Pecan Joys yesterday and am very sorry to say that I was disappointed with the finished product. Although they tasted great with the chocolate, coconut, pecan combination, the texture did not turn out like a chewy bar cookie. They were very crumbly and just fell apart when I tried to cut them. It seems like there are not enough “wet” ingredients in this recipe. Even when I was mixing it, it was dry and not forming a dough. I added a little milk, but apparently not enough. I’m not giving up, though. I really want this recipe to work because it’s so simple and so tasty. Next time I may try mixing the cake mix with the wet ingredients thoroughly before adding the nuts and chocolate. Does anyone have suggestions for how to make this turn out better?

    I did make these the other day, I will post a blog on them soon (elsepeth27.blogspot.com). I substituted some ingredients and "created" a cake mix from a cake recipe. If you're interested in the results, please take a look, the post will hopefully be up tomorrow or Saturday. :) Thanks for a tasty different recipe!

    i edited the ingredients to clarify that the jiffy cake mixes are just 1 layer mixes. thanks michelle73 for pointing that out! and as a side note, these taste a lot like the "paradise pies" from chili's....

    Is this using a one layer cake mix? I want to be sure before I make it because it sure sounds good!
