    Jellyqueen's Note:

    Just another wonderful recipe from Light & Tasty that I adjusted to our taste. Although this recipe does have the coconut in it, the cherry is the most powerful flavor. I would recommend coconut extract, instead of vanilla, if you are going for the coconut taste.

      I made these for my "Girls' Night In" Valentine's party and the pink cherry color made for a great presentation. The ladies liked them too! Light and Tasty actually has 1 egg and 2 egg whites in place of the two eggs, which reduces this down to 7 grams of fat per bar.

      Love this Bar. When starting to put this together I realized it was a recipe that I made many years ago and lost.I had not made this recipe for almost 30 years. I was so excited to find in amongst your recipes. Needless to say it is so much easier to mix up using the food processor. A great treat to serve at any time but don't foget to have this one on your Christmas dainty tray as well. Quick, easy and so very good.
