Coconut Fudge Bars

April 27, 2011

Coconut Fudge Bars

Sometimes this is all you need in life to make everything better.
 
I needed a quick and simple dessert for a Good Friday lunch with friends, and these fudge bars were the perfect solution. They are no-bake and took no time at all to put together and throw in the fridge for a few hours. They are completely preggo-friendly (i.e. lazy girl cooking/baking… but also that they don’t contain any deli meat, bean sprouts, unpasterized cheeses – I miss you goat cheese – or any of the other millions of things I’m not supposed to be eating right now. Pssshhhaw).
You certainly don’t have to be 5 months pregnant to enjoy making a family friendly dessert, so here you all go! And I full on copy and pasted here, so even my blog is preggo-friendly (again, talking about the lazy factor).
 
Coconut Fudge Bars
from Kraft Canada
 
1 cup butter, divided
2-1/2 cups Honey Maid Graham Crumbs
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup evaporated milk
1 pkg. (250 g) Jet-Puffed Miniature Marshmallows
1-1/2 pkg. (8 squares each) Baker’s Semi-Sweet Chocolate, coarsely chopped
1 cup chopped walnuts (I left these out. Yuck).
1 cup flaked coconut, toasted (toast at 350 on a single layered baking pan, stirring every 30 seconds or so, for 2-4 minutes)

 

LINE 13×9-inch pan with parchment, with ends of parchment extending over sides. Spray with cooking spray. Mix 3/4 cup butter; mix with crumbs. Press onto bottom of pan.

BRING remaining butter, sugar, milk and marshmallows to boil in large saucepan on medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook 5 min., stirring constantly. Add chocolate; cook until melted, stirring frequently. Pour over crust.

TOP with nuts and coconut. Refrigerate 2 hours or until firm.

I only added the toasted coconut on half the bars to accommodate any coconut haters, but I was surprised to see that the coconut half disappeared first!

    I love anything that’s quick and easy. And when you combine that with a chocolate dessert, I’m seriously in!

      Courtney – I am SO happy you commented because I found your blog through it! You are awesome, and I absolutely love the concept of your blog! I tried commenting on a post, but something is wrong with my settings, and none of my comments are working on other blogs right now. I don’t know what’s going on, but hopefully you’ll see this, and hopefully I’ll get things worked out on my end 🙂

    I ate goat cheese! Not sure what kind you’re into but the soft little “logs” we get are all pasteurized!!! PS. These bars look scrumptious! My mom found some gluten-free graham crumbs… yum!
