Raspberry Coconut Bars Recipe

From Fort Collins, Colorado, Barb Bovberg shares, "I’ve been whipping up these delicious bars for over 10 years, with recent help from my 5-year-old daughter. I bake them every Christmas and have received many compliments and recipe requests. The chocolate drizzle makes such a pretty lacy effect."
