These remind me of the coconut topping on a German chocolate cake. We couldn't wait for them to cool off before trying them..... delicious!

I would call them coconut bars. They are quite thin. Easy to make.

Not liking sweet coconut, I would not have made if I hadn't been clearning my cabinets of older ingredients. I had everything needed, made them, served, and retrieved recipe from waste basket. These bars are great for make-ahead and impromptu "tea time".

Toffee bars turn out so quick and taste so good, my family makes them any time we have all the ingredients. They're delicious and definitely a keeper.
