Looking for an extra special treat as the holidays approach? I have you covered! These amazing Coconut Chocolate Bars are sure to be your new favorite dessert recipe.

Between the buttery graham cracker crust, gooey chocolate chips, toasted coconut, and crunchy walnuts I’m willing to bet you might just be inspired to make these a few times before the year is over!

The cookie bars very closely resemble Magic Bars or Hello Dolly bars but the overwhelming sweetness is cut down a bit. They are great for gifting, just like my caramel pretzel bars, cranberry crumb bars, or peanut butter chocolate chip bars.

Step by step

This recipe is very easy and nearly fail-proof, you don’t even need to dirty a mixing bowl!

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line your baking dish with parchment paper or nonstick foil.
  2. Microwave butter for one minute or until melted. Pour butter in a 9 by 13-inch baking pan.
  3. Add graham cracker crumbs to pan and use a spatula to press crumbs firmly into the butter to form the bottom crust.
  4. Sprinkle nuts, 1/2 cup of the coconut shreds, and chocolate chips over graham crackers.
  5. Pour the condensed milk evenly over mixture and top with the remaining coconut.
  6. Bake the bars for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely on wire rack and place in the refrigerator for one hour minutes to set. Cut into squares and enjoy!

Tips for bet results

  • The finer the graham cracker crumbs, the more dense and firm the crust will be. Larger crumbs will make for a crumbly crust (no effect on taste) so I recommend using a food processor to crush the graham crackers.

Variations

  • skip the walnuts
  • substitute pecans for walnuts
  • sprinkle the top with a little sea salt
  • drizzle the top with melted chocolate, colored candy melts, or caramel

FAQs

How many graham crackers make 1 cup of crumbs?

It takes about 7-8 graham crackers to make one cup of crumbs.

How do I keep the bars from sticking to the pan?

The sweetened condensed milk in this recipe can cause some sticking if the pan is prepared properly. I recommend lining it with parchment paper or aluminum foil before adding your bar layers.

Why are my bars gooey/melted?

Make sure you allow the bars to cool completely before cutting. The sweetened condensed milk needs to solidify as it cools.

Can I make these bars into squares?

Yes, you can make this recipe into bars or squares.

Do coconut bars need to be refrigerated?

You can keep these bars in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days or store in the refrigerator up to 7 days.

Can they be frozen?

Yes! You can freeze them up to 3 months. After the bars cool completely put them in a freezer-safe container, separated by sheets of wax or parchment paper to help prevent them from sticking.
You can also freeze them on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and then transfer to a freezer bag.
