I needed something to make for a summer themed mommy/baby play date and coconut popped into my head. To be honest, I am not the biggest fan of coconut. The most I can take is a Caramel Delight Girl Scout cookie but Jon is a coconut fiend! I was thrilled to come across this easy recipe for coconut cream bars and although I did not indulge in them, people kept going on and on about how delicious they were. The recipe is laughable because it is SO easy! Perfect for a summer play date or BBQ!
1 14oz bag shredded sweetened coconut plus extra for sprinkling
14oz can sweetened condensed milk
2 cups powdered sugar
1 package chocolate bark
1. Mix together bag of shredded coconut, milk, and powdered sugar. Use a mixer to combine, the mixture will be very sticky
2. Spread evenly into a greased 9x13 inch baking dish and let harden in refrigerator.
3. Cut into bars and dip into melted chocolate bark. Immediately sprinkle with additional coconut
4. Let chocolate harden and enjoy!
*My sister and I were talking about possibly pouring the melted chocolate over the 9x13 inch dish instead of dipping individually. Would be a lot easier!
