GREAT COMBINATON! My friends nicknamed these cookies "black-white" bars. These bars help with the chocolate and coconut cravings at the same time! They sell well at Bake Sales! Careful not to overbake. They store well in an air-tight container and flavor enhances with age.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium size bowl, beat eggs and add sugar. Blend in melted butter and vanilla.
  2. Mix flour, baking powder and salt. Blend into mixture.
  3. Pour one-half of batter into another bowl. In one batter add cocoa and the one tablespoon of melted butter. In the second batter add coconut.
  4. Pour the chocolate batter into a greased 8 x 8 baking pan. Spread the coconut batter on top.
  5. Bake in a 325 degree oven for 25 minutes. Do not overbake. Cool.
  6. Topping: Melt chocolate chips in microwave for 1 minute. Add melted butter and mix. Spread onto cooled bars. Let cool completely and cut into bars. Cut small--they are rich. (I have placed pan in fridg for 30 minutes to cool quickly.).
  7. Enjoy!

I thought these were really good and my husband made me bookmark the recipe. Following another review, I did double the recipe and baked in an 11x13 pan, but other than that, stuck to the recipe. They were easy, really very tasty and will definitely make them again. Thanks for the recipe!

Delicious!!!! These were sooo good and not to sweet. I was looking for something to satisfy my husbands chocolate craving and my coconut craving and my children don't like nuts! These were perfect, made them for a party and were enjoyed by everyone! I used Ghiradelli milk chocolate chips for the top and double the recipe and made them in a 9x13 pan. I baked them for 30 min. and they were perfect! I like this recipe because it didn't require a lot of specialty ingredients, I had everything I needed at home to make it, so it wasn't pricey. Definitely will make this again!

I made these on 9/29/08. And I've got to tell you, "That these little suckers are nothing but pure evil". And I mean that in a good way.You have to be careful about eating too many at one time, they are very rich.They would be perfect with a glass of milk. These are going to be made again.Thank you for posting and, "Keep Smiling :)"
