Chocolate Coconut Dream Bars

These bars are a delicious treat. When I got this recipe it did not contain chocolate, but I couldn't imagine coconut without chocolate, so I added it! I am listing the chocolate chips as optional, but I highly recommend them :)

This is a fantastic recipe! I got decadent and added some chopped maraschino cherries... Wonderful. I think this recipe is one of the nice adaptable ones. Cherries or raisins or nuts instead of the chocolate chips, or in addition to the chocolate chips and/or skor chips... In any case, I have this saved, it's a keeper! Thanks

I made this recipe as is - and it was scrumptious. You could add cherries if you like. I will also be keeping this one in my cookbook.

I like the chocolate/coconut combi! Really very good and easy.
I prepared these for Christmas and I decorated with some colored glaze.
Thanks for the recipe.
