White Chocolate and Pineapple Coconut Bars

Nobody can resist these chewy White Chocolate, Pineapple Coconut Bars and the longer they stand the better !
These White Chocolate and Pineapple Coconut Bars might as well have been called Pina Colada bars, but the white chocolate gives it a totally different spin, on not only the flavor but the texture as well.

I would not say it is overly gooey, but together with the pineapple it becomes a delicious chewy cake with a simple coconut icing.

I made a double batch as I knew we would love these and therefore had some leftover the following day. The bars only became more delicious ! This is definitely one of those cakes that develops more taste on standing, but feel free to tuck in right after you have iced them {or not !}

WHITE CHOCOLATE AND PINEAPPLE COCONUT BARS

approximately  30 bars {depending on your cut}

INGREDIENTS:

90g Butter, chopped coarsely
250g White Chocolate, good eating quality, chopped
1 can (440g) Crushed Pineapple
1/2 cup Caster Sugar
2 Eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2 cups Flour
1/2 cup Self-Raising Flour
1/2 cup Desiccated Coconut

1 1/2 cup Icing Sugar, sifted
1/3 cup Shredded Coconut

DIRECTIONS:

1.) Pre-heat the oven to 160 deg C (325 deg F) - line a baking sheet with baking paper.
2.) Melt together the Butter and White Chocolate - leave to cool slightly.
3.) Meanwhile, drain the Pineapple, but retain 2 tablespoons of liquid.
4.) Stir in the Caster Sugar, Eggs, Flour, Self-Raising Flour and Desiccated Coconut into the melted Chocolate - add the drained Pineapple and stir well to combine.
5.) Pour batter onto the prepared baking sheet and make even - bake 30 - 35 minutes - remove from the oven and let cool completely in the baking sheet.
6.) Combine the retained Pineapple liquid and Icing Sugar - stir until icing is spreadable.
7.) Spread the Icing over the cake and sprinkle with Shredded Coconut.

Stand at room temperature until icing has set before slicing into bars.
