Description

My coconut bars are an American version of a Filipino coconut cake called bibingka. These are a crispier, sweeter take on the Christmas tradition I grew up liking. —Denise Nyland, Panama City, FL

Made these today to share with friends but after my husband tasted he asked me not to give these away!

Oh how I loved these! I love coconut desserts and this one did not disappoint! I love anything that has sweetened condensed milk in it! I did a test run with it and will be taking it to my moms for Christmas this year!

I love coconut. This recipe gets one big YUM from me!

I brought these to work and have had many requests for more. They are wonderfully sweet, and just rich enough.

Wow--these are divine! I made them for my coconut-loving husband to take to a meeting but after sampling one, Im not sure I want to share!

Excellent coconut dessert! Easy to make, and everyone loved them at Christmas this year! I refrigerated them after cutting into bars to help them firm up a little.

These are superb! I followed the recipe exactly. They were a big hit at a recent Christmas cookie exchange party. Will make these again & again. YUM! Caryn W

I love anything coconut and this recipe caught my eye. Im glad I made the bars! They are easy to put together and will be fantastic to serve at church or any family get together. I made no adjustments since I dont do that on the first time around. The only thing that I might do next time is drizzle them with chocolate but they certainly dont need any augmentation.

My husband LOVED these and I used organic unsweetened coconut, otherwise followed this recipe to the T!!!
