These Chocolate Chip-Coconut Bars are making me happy and my scale rather unhappy! I swear I heard it let out a groan the other day. Or maybe that was just me. . .
Oooey, gooey, chocolatey and oh so rich. From the buttery rich base of the cookie, made from the Master Cookie Dough, to the creamy and chewy topping, these cookie are a fabulous holiday cookie. Actually, a fabulous anytime cookie, really.
What you’ll need:
1 9×9 square baking pan
2 cups Master Cookie Dough
1 cup shredded sweetened coconut
1 cup chocolate chips
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
Heat your oven to 350 degrees. Press the cookie dough into the bottom of the pan.
Spread the coconut evenly onto the dough, then sprinkle the chocolate chips onto the coconut. Pour the can of condensed milk over the coconut and chips.
Bake the cookie 25-30 minutes, or until the milk is bubbly and slightly browned, and the filling is set. Let the cookie cool for 30 minutes, then carefully loosen it around the edges. Turn the cookie out onto a plate, then invert it onto a cooling rack.
Let the cookie cool completely before cutting. Trim the edges off the cookie (and if you are anything like me, eat the edges quickly before anyone else can get them!)
Cut the cookie into 16 squares.
