Chocolate Coconut Bars

Have you ever tucked one of the kids into bed at night and then they remember to ask for a plate of food to be shared at a class party the very next morning? This has happened to me countless times but the other night, it was hubby who asked, after I had supposedly closed the kitchen for the night.  He and his team were moving into a new office space and as an informal celebration, each wife was sending in a plate of nibblies. Luckily I have a few quick and easy recipes in the files and these Chocolate Coconut Bars are always a crowd pleaser:
I'm pretty sure this recipe was in an old issue of the Woman's Weekly magazine. My nan cooked it a lot and passed it on to me, where its become a family favorite. Its loaded with coconut and it has that lovely cake like texture unlike some slice recipes which can be quite dense.
All you need are a few staple ingredients from the pantry and around 30 minutes of your time, to mix, bake and ice the slice and then its just a matter of letting it cool before you cut it into bars. They make an attractive plate to take and share or they are a great little treat to pop in the lunchboxes.
We enjoy those yummy crusts but for a more refined presentation, cut those off (and nibble on them) before you slice it into bars or small squares. They are so versatile and would look right at home on a cake plate for high tea or be a great addition to the outdoor family picnic.
I hope you and your family enjoy these Chocolate Coconut Bars. It is a wonderful, quick recipe to have in your file for those unexpected "catering emergencies" or for when you feel like baking something without too much fuss and mess.
