Chocolate Coconut Bars

February 3, 2015 / by Liz

Well, I’m back in Paris! I had the best week at home with my family and friends… I was definitely sad to leave Newfoundland, but also happy to get back to Paris and Hitchen and all my furries. I also had a ton on fun baking in my parent’s kitchen while I was home! I posted some macarons last week (here and here), but I also have some other sweets to add to the blog. Here are some easy chocolate coconut bars :)

INGREDIENTS

for the base;
115 g (~1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
150 g almond flour
110 g brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt

for the filling;
300 g chocolate chips
110 g shredded unsweetened coconut
130 g walnuts, chopped
300 mL sweetened condensed milk

DIRECTIONS

Preheat the oven to 350F (180C), and line a 7×10″ baking pan with parchment paper, so that it overhangs the sides. Combine the ingredients for the base in a large bowl. Press into the prepared baking pan, and bake for 10 minutes. Place on a cooling rack to return to room temperature.

Meanwhile, combine all the ingredients for the filling in a large bowl, and mix well. Once the base is cooled, pour the filling on top, and press into place.

4 - Topping Pre Baking

Bake for another 20 to 25 minutes, until golden brown, and filling is set. Place on a cooling rack, and allow to cool completely before cutting. (Although, if I’m being honest, I didn’t wait. I ate. But they cut better if they’re cool!)

6 - Cut Into Squares

So yum, and so easy!
