Vacuum Bars

READY IN: 1hr 10mins

These are from a cookie exchange and were so good!! Reminds me of coconut cream pie. Called Vacuum Bars because they get sucked up quickly!

Made for Make my Recipe Tag in the Aus/NZ Forum- used a gluten-free cake mix and coconut flakes in this recipe. Very rich and delicious. 4 cups seemed like a lot of sugar.......but followed the recipe and the bars were perfect. Photo also to be posted
