Fudgy Macaroon Bars
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 35 min. + cooling
They were fantastic! I lined the pan with non-stick foil and refrigerated them. Let the foil overhang the pan by about an inch and you can pull them right out.
They tasted great, but they stuck to the bottom and were very gooey. I even refrigerated them, but still couldn't get them out of the pan very well.
Read the reviews, tried a smaller pan to make thicker bars as others suggested and all I have to say is there’s a reason it’s a larger pan in the recipe!! They flopped big time, did not cook properly in the centre while the edges got hard, had to cook them at least an hour and the centre STILL turned out a bit undercooked, they look nothing like the picture, HOWEVER despite the cooking mishap the taste is still on point!! I would definitely try to make them again but in the suggested pan size. Otherwise great recipe! I am still happy with the turnout. Mine are ugly but delicious. Even with gluten free flour, which is what I made mine with. I think they would be great with extra coconut sprinkled on top with the walnuts :)
These were awesome! Made them for a Christmas family gathering, and everyone loved them. I just used an entire 14 oz pkg of coconut. Mine definitely didn't look as pretty as the ones in the picture (they stuck to the bottom of the pan), but they still tasted great!
I was so excited for these, but they didn't quite turn out as I had hoped. Utilizing a 13X9 pan did not yield bars that looked anything like the picture. They were much thinner and the coconut mixture was not as nicely distributed. The dessert itself was far too sweet for me. I was hoping that the unsweetened chocolate would tone it down, but combined with the chips on top and condensed milk, it was too sweet and yielded a very almond-y flavor despite a reduced amount of extract. I don't see myself making this again.
DELICIOUS!! Was a big hit at a family gathering. Added a little extra coconut and the bars turned out just like the picture!!
This recipe is easy to make and very delish!
Overall, I'd have to give these a 5 star rating. I was a bit disappointed by the fact that they didn't turn out as thick as the picture shows. I think you'd have to make them in a smaller pan to get them to turn out thick like in the picture. I added a full teaspoon of almond extract, and used sliced, toasted almonds on top instead of walnuts. I was hoping that these were going to taste like an Almond Joy candy bar, but they really don't. They are good though, just different than what I expected. You'll need a glass of milk with these.
Love these bars and everywhere I take them people just love them. So easy. I made the recipe exactly how it is and so good.
