Chocolate Coconut Bars

I cut this recipe off my brown sugar package. It's been sitting on top of my canisters for a couple weeks just waiting for me. Today I finally made these bars - haven't tried them yet, but they smell wonderful!

Chocolate Coconut Bars

  • 1-1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine (1 stick), softened
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate pieces (6 oz.)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 tbsp. flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1-1/2 cup coconut, flaked
  1. Grease 13x9x2-inch-baking dish.
  2. In large bowl using a pastry cutter, fork, or your fingers, combine first four ingredients until crumbly. Pat into baking dish. Bake 10 minutes at 375°F.
  3. Sprinkle chocolate pieces over hot crust; return to oven about 1 minute to soften. Spread chocolate evenly over crust.
  4. In medium bowl, beat eggs until thick and lemon-colored. Beat in sugar and vanilla. Combine flour, baking powder and salt and beat into sugar mixture. Stir in coconut. Spread evenly over chocolate layer.
  5. Bake 15 to 20 minutes. Cool in pan and cut into bars.
Makes 2 dozen

This recipe was copied from the C&H website, slightly edited. There are lots more great-sounding recipes to choose from, too. It looks like I don't have to save the recipes from my sugar bags any more, just visit the web page and look them up.

ETA: These were a big hit at the church potluck.



Obtain and select some good things from you and it helps me to solve a problem, thanks.
