Coconut Bars

I got this recipe off of the back of a can of condensed milk.  They are yummy and ooey, gooey.
  • 1 package of White cake mix
  • ¼  C. butter, softened
  • ¼  C. of sweetened coconut
  • ¼  C. chopped pecans
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1 C. of sweetened coconut, plus ½ C. for topping
  • 1 C. of chopped pecans
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Spray a 13 x 9 baking dish with cooking spray
  3. Mix the crust ingredients together, then spread into the baking dish
  4. Beat the milk, vanilla and egg together
  5. Fold in the coconut and pecans
  6. Pour the filling into the crust, then sprinkle with the ½ C. of coconut
  7. Bake for 35 minutes or until golden brown
  8. Let cool for about 15 minutes, then cut into squares
  9. Makes 32 bars
Tips and Tricks:
  • Spreading the crust into the baking dish is easier said than done.  I dust my hands with flour and press the crust into place.  You want the crust to slide up the side of the dish so the filling doesn’t escape.
  • You can add about 2 C. of semi-sweet chocolate chips on top of the filling if you want a chocolate dessert.
