 “There is no spectacle on earth more appealing than that of a beautiful woman in the act of cooking dinner for someone she loves.”

I first made these gooey coconut mounds bars with my dear, sweet, mom-in-law on a random week night when we needed a fast dessert for the guys.

They were a hit to a coconut lovin’ family! The coconut oil (her idea!) in the chocolate adds an extra burst of coconut flavor that is absolutely delicious! The chewy edges are perfection.

{These are even more amazing with toasted almond slivers scattered on top of the chocolate.}

So – without further-ado here is the recipe!
