I'm a huge fan of coconut, and these dessert bars did not disappoint! They were a little too sticky, but they were the perfect amount of sweetness!

In the future, I would probably add a bit more chocolate or nuts, since coconut can be pretty overpowering, but I liked it nevertheless!

I would have liked them in the traditional macaroon shape because it is easier to eat. I did love the addition of chocolate and nuts!

The taste of these really did remind me of coconut macaroons! I really liked them, but they are pretty sticky to eat with your fingers.

These weren't my favorite, but they still made for a sweet treat. Next time I will probably make traditional coconut macaroons.
