Let the holiday baking begin with Chocolate Coconut Nut Bars! Slightly sticky, a little chewy, chocolatey and loaded with nuts and coconut. It’s hard not to love this combination! A fantastic square to add to your holiday lineup.
For me, the holidays represent a time to see family and friends that I may not see more than once or twice a year. So without a doubt it’s a special time for me to visit, laugh and spend quality time with those that I love. It’s also a time when I don’t think about the calories in food, or having that extra glass of wine. It is in a nutshell my time to live, drink and be merry for the lack of a better analogy.
It’s also my little ritual to bake squares and treats to send off to co-workers, family and friends. Although I have a few that are ALWAYS in the lineup, I do like to add something different each year just to have a little variety. This year’s square creation started out as a nut tart but turned into bars with great results. A chocolate cookie like base topped with a slightly gooey roasted nut and coconut mixture makes this square a definite keeper and a place in my holiday baking tin.
I love these Chocolate Coconut Nut Bars mostly because I LOVE coconut but also because they’re a great combination of all things delicious. A lovely cookie like base, crunchy nuts and chewy coconut topped off by a generous drizzle of chocolate…….Oh ya, let the holidays begin!
