Gooey Goodness!

I like coconut, but I must admit that I don’t LOVE it. I love coconut flavor more than I love the texture. … Anyway, these yummy bars were AMAZING…and, even though the recipe called for TONS of coconut, it wasn’t overwhelmingly coconutty! It is a recipe I will make again and again and again…a great “take with you” dessert! Or a great “eat the whole pan by yourself” dessert! :) Thanks, Cara, for sharing this scrumptious treat! mid May 2011 007GOOEY COCONUT BARS
