I'm not a HUGE Fan of Coconut....

But, I like it in some desserts.... ESPECIALLY this one!!!

Mounds Bars

I got this recipe from one of the food blogs I have listed... its called I looked up coconut on the side because Josh loves coconut so I thought I would make him something with it for Valentine's day. Well not only did he love them, but so did I. I think I ate more of it than he did.
This recipe is SO easy and SO good!!!

"Mounds Bars"

2 cups graham crackers, crushed
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar
14 oz. condensed milk, sweetened
1 cup shredded coconut
1 1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 tbsp. peanut butter
Mix together first three ingredients. Pack in a greased 9x13 in. pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Combine milk and coconut and spread over graham cracker mixture. Bake for 15 minutes more or until golden brown. Melt chips and peanut butter and spread over cooled coconut and graham cracker mixture. Refrigerate. Serve.
***It is amazing how easy it is to melt chocolate chips and peanut butter in the microwave....I used to do it on the stove and had terrible results***
