I got the base for this recipe from Lynn's Kitchen Adventures and modified it slightly for our needs. The end products is pretty much dead on.
  • (2) 14 ounce bags of coconut
  • 1 can Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • 1 lb powdered sugar
  • 4 cups of Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate Chips
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  1. In a large bowl mix together the coconut, sweetened condensed milk, ½ cup butter, and powdered sugar. Mix well.
  2. Spread mixture onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  3. Melt 2 cups chocolate chips and 1 tablespoon of butter in the microwave stirring every 30 seconds until melted. Spread over chilled coconut mixture and chill until chocolate is set.
  4. Flip bars over and carefully peel or parchment paper. Melt remaining chocolate and butter. Spread over the coconut layer. Chill.
  5. After firm, bring to room temperature and then cut them. If the chocolate is solid these will be hard to cut. I bring them to room temperature to cut them, and then put them back in the refrigerator to store them
