    I see two people who have never even tried this recipe have given it one star - which appears to be unfair. Therefore, I had to rate this recipe on just how good it sounds. With the ingredients listed, I can't imagine it being anything but ymmy. Perhaps the site should not allow a rating if the reader has not made the recipe. This would allow everyone to get a more accurate review from folks who have actually tried the recipe.

    I used this recipe but I modified it a bit. I didn't use coconut because my husband doesn't like the taste and just adjusted up the graham cracker and walnuts to make up the difference. Instead of vanilla pudding, I used the pre-made Kraft Philadelphia Cream Cheese Cheesecake flavor. And they were really quite good and I got many compliments on them.
