If you are a fan of coconut you are definitely going to want to give these a try! They’re easy to make and very delicious! They make a great summer treat! This is definitely a fun dessert to bring to get togethers. People are always wowed with these bars.

Thank you so much Colleen!
Oh such nice treats. Love them. Thank you. Have a Great Week.
I don’t like the smell of marshmallows … can we substitute anything else instead of the marshmallow
These are great! I made them earlier this week and my wife and all my coworkers (that like coconut) really liked them.
I’D JUST USE THE JARRED MARSHMALLOW CREME…LESS HASSLE AND LESS CLEANUP.
I’m going to love this site!!
This looks absolutely wonderful for my Mom’s 90th Birthday…wondering how many this will serve??? Anyone have any idea???
At first I cut them into 15 pieces, but then I took some to work for my coworkers, so I cut those pieces in half. So to answer your question I would say 15 really big pieces or 30 regular pieces. :)
Would this work without the chocolate? It sounds like that would make it too sweet.
I can’t say for sure because I haven’t tried it that way… but I can’t see why it wouldn’t work.
I can’t wait to see and try all of your wonderful meals . Thank you for sharing
Thank you for the nice recipes. Have a great day.
Can’t wait to try these – great recipe and looks easy :)
WOULD YOU BE ABLE TO USE CRUSHED PINEAPPLE DRIED OFF REAL GOOD.
I haven’t tried it that way but I bet it would be delicious if it worked.
You can make your own dried pineapple by putting slices of canned or fresh pineapple in the oven at 160 degrees until it’s dried out enough. I’m not so sure “wet” pineapple would work well in this recipe; it might eventually make the squares not so crispie.
What a great tip Julie! Thank you!
