This recipe is a bit similar to the seven layer bars that you see on holidays but so extremely richer in its chocolate flavor and the aroma of these bars while baking is enough to make your mouth water. One of the easiest dessert recipes to make and is a perfect gift idea especially on special occasions. The coconut and chocolate compliments each other perfectly making these chocolate bars superbly delicious. I have to warn you though; these bars will make you disappointed because of its fabulous taste they will be gone before you know it so you better bake more of these.
