Caramel Coconut Bars

Caramel Coconut Bars are divine ! Quick, easy and a never fail recipe – perfect dessert or addition to a sweet party platter.

Caramel Coconut Bars

I did not plan on making these Caramel Coconut Bars a couple of days ago, but at the very last minute I decided to update some of my old posts with new photos.

Most of my 2012/2013 photos need updating. And I also like to check on the recipes, whether I have changed something since the first post or if I am still making the dishes/treats the same.

I make these Coconut Bars fairly often and knew I have not changed anything, except the Chocolate topping.

Previously I have used Strawberry, Dark or Plain Chocolate, but have found that the Caramel is a huge favorite with my family.

The filling tastes like a NIKI bar, very coconutty and so chewy ! Combine the filling with the delicious, lightly baked crust and you have a winner for dessert or to serve at tea time.

And I absolutely love how quick these are to make – only the cooling takes a bit of time. These bars do not last long, however, it is a very sweet treat, therefore I’ll suggest not cutting them into too big squares/rectangles.

This recipe has never failed and I find I need to hand out the recipe each time someone new tastes them.
