Black Bottom Coconut Bars

Sunday, April 06, 2014

Hello Sparkfamily! Here is a special treat for your next gathering that is sure to be a hit! Take a look!


The Brownie Base~

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, plus more for pan
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 large egg
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)

The Coconut Topping~

2 large eggs
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract (real really is best)
1 cup all-purpose flour, (spooned and leveled)
1 package sweetened shredded coconut (7 ounces), 1/2 cup reserved for sprinkling


For chocolate base~ Preheat oven to 375 F. Line a 9-inch square baking pan with aluminum foil, leaving a slight overhang; butter bottom and sides of foil (not overhang). Melt butter in large microwave safe bowl in microwave. Add sugar and salt; whisk to combine. Whisk in egg, then cocoa and flour until smooth. Spread batter in prepared pan. Bake just until sides begin to pull away from edges of pan, 10 to 15 minutes (do not over bake). Let cool slightly while preparing topping. (Keep oven on). For coconut topping~ In a medium bowl, whisk eggs, sugar and vanilla. Gently mix in flour and coconut (except 1/2 cup reserved for sprinkling). Drop mounds of mixture over chocolate base; spread and pat in gently and evenly with moistened fingers. Sprinkle with reserved 1/2 cup coconut. Bake until golden and a toothpick inserted in center comes out with moist crumbs attached, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool completely in pan. Lift cake from pan, peel off foil, and cut into 24 bars. Enjoy!

Thought of the day~ Every time you state what you want or believe, you're the first to hear it. It's a message to both you and others about what you think is possible. Don't put a ceiling on yourself! Have a healthy day! Hugs, Rose:) emoticon

    Oh my, now that's my cup of tea! Just like an Almond Joy without the almonds. One could place a roasted almonds here and there evenly, couldn't one and I bet it'd taste like the famous candy bar and would be cheaper too! emoticon

    Those bars are sinful, and I am really sorry that I am a sinner! My, my, my! If I am ever thin again (!!!), I will make these and EAT them all up. And then they could be called Fat Bottom Coconut Bars. LOL
