White Chocolate and Pineapple Coconut Bars

White Chocolate and Pineapple Coconut Bars which no one can ever resist ! Spring and tropical flavors rule in these easy to make bars, and the longer they stand the better.

White Chocolate and Pineapple Coconut Bars

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.

It is not 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 !).
