Recipe by Chabear01

Found this recipe in November 1996 Family Circle Magazine. Since I Love, Love Maple I simply had to make these delicious bars. I did use my Amber Maple Syrup as I usually do in all recipes calling for Maple Syrup, it imparts a bit stronger maple flavor into everything I make with it, but feel free to use regular Maple Syrup since cost could be a factor if giving as gifts. Since coconut is not everyones favorite ingredient I suppose you could increase the pecans and leave out the coconut, or replace the expensive pecans as I did once with 2 1/2 cups chopped walnuts.(It does affect the taste though) Cooking time is refrigerate baking needed here.
