It’s a dreamy world when pecans and coconut collide, so when my friend, Kassy, shared this pecan bars recipe with me I knew it would be just the thing to help make my dreamy world a reality! I enjoyed a generous portion with a nice, hot cup of Millican Pecan’s Texas Pecan Coffee. Oh my goodness, just mentioning it makes me want to stop writing right now and go brew a pot. Must. Stay. Focused.
I hope you enjoy this dessert as much as I do!
Coconut Pecan Bars
1 box Graham Crackers
2 sticks Butter
2 cans Sweetened Condensed Milk
(1) 16 oz. Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
1 small bag Coconut Flakes
2 cups Pecan Pieces
Place the graham crackers in a bag and finely crush them. Then pour them into the bottom of a 9×13 baking pan. Next, melt the butter and pour over the graham crackers. Using your hands combine the butter and crackers together. Then begin to pat the mixture down to form a crust on the bottom of the pan.
Next, pour one can of sweetened condensed milk over the graham cracker crust and spread evenly with a spatula. Now your next layer will be half of the semi sweet morsels, and then top it off with a layer of coconut using only half of the bag. Take 1 cup of Pecan Pieces and evenly spread them out. Then repeat the layering process beginning with the chocolate, pecans and coconut and then ending with the other can of sweetened condensed milk.
Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Then allow to cool down, and then cut into bars. Yields 24 bars.
