Having four kids, school, sports and other activities our lives are pretty busy all the time. However, at the end of the year it seems to get even more hectic. I don't know what it is, but I'm happy when it's over. Even though it's crazy I still like to whip up a dessert for us to have once a week. I had some coconut and chocolate chips that have been sitting around and thought I'd come up with something quick and easy to use them up. These little bites turned out delicious and you can make a batch in no time at all!
Ingredients are as follows:
1/2 C butter, softened
3/4 C sugar
1 1/4 C flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 C chocolate chips
1/2 C sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
6 Tbsp. butter, melted & cooled
2 C coconut
Preheat oven to 350 degrees; spray a 9 x 13" pan with non-stick cooking spray.
For the base, cream together the butter, egg and sugar.
Whip in the flour and baking powder.
Evenly spread into the greased pan.
Bake for 10 minutes; remove from oven and sprinkle on the chocolate chips.
Wait a minute for them to melt then evenly spread around; set aside.
For the topping, whisk together the eggs, sugar and vanilla.
Mix in the melted butter and coconut.
Carefully spread the coconut mixture on top of the chocolate.
Bake for 20-25 minutes; until the edges are golden brown. Allow to cool.
Slice, serve, and enjoy!
