Happy Lord’s Day readers! I hope that today was a beautiful day for you all.
It rained here. Awwwesomme!
I have something for you too. Mmm hmm. I think you’ll like it too. They are cookies. Bar cookies with dark chocolate (Ooo!) and coconut (Ahh!).
The cookie part is basically a butter cookie. Delish. The topping is dark chocolate and sprinkled with coconut. Could you ask for any more? Nope. That’s pretty much all you need. Butter + dark chocolate + coconut = happiness.
Here’s a photo~
I’ll not keep you waiting any longer with my chit-chat. Here is my Sunday gift to you! :)
Dark Chocolate Coconut Cookie Bars
makes 12 cookie bars
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1 egg, room temp
- 2 cups unbleached, all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp sea salt
- teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups dark chocolate chips
- 1 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly butter a baking sheet.
In a medium sized bowl, beat together the brown sugar and butter until fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and beat gently. Add the flour and salt and beat until the dough just comes together.
Spread the dough out on the baking sheet and bake for 15-17 minutes, just until lightly brown.
Pull the pan from the oven and sprinkle on the chocolate. Return to the oven for 1 more minute.
Now, remove the pan from the oven and the chocolate chips will be soft and melty. Spread them out with a spatula or butter knife to coat the cookie in the melted chocolate.
Sprinkle on the coconut and let the bars cool. Then if you are really patient put them in the fridge for 30-40 minutes to get them all nice and cold. OOHH my are they good cold. It’s worth the wait! :)
So, enjoy these and share them with your favorite people. :)
