Chocolate Coconut Bars

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. Bake: 25 min.

Makes

3 dozen

With a middle layer of coconut, these sweet chocolaty treats taste similar to a Mounds candy bar! If time is short, don't wait for the bars to cool-just lay on several thin milk chocolate bars right after you take the pan from the oven and spread them as they melt.
