Brown sugar coconut chocolate bars are rich, sweet, gooey goodness from top to bottom. Perfect for dessert or a sweet treat any time.

As a baker, you can lure friends with treats. You can bake and have someone fall in love with the smell drifting from the oven. Better yet, you can barter with your treats! On Martha’s Vineyard, we’ve formed communities. Online Facebook communities to help summer people get housing, groups for selling and buying, groups for sharing daily photos of the Vineyard. How does this come into play with these delicious bars? Let’s just say I bought a chair and bartered to have it delivered in exchange of these treats (and some extra marshmallows!)

  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips

  • Press half the dough into greased, and foil covered pan (this one is 8 by 8 inches).
  • Sprinkle mini chocolate chips. Roll the other half of the dough to fit on top and press down.
  • Sprinkle with shredded coconut.
  • Bake 30 minutes, until coconut is toasted and bar is fully baked. Cool for an hour or overnight for clean cuts.

  1. Hello
    Thanks for the Brown Sugar, Coconut & Chocolate Bars recipe.
    I’ll create one for sure, my kids are gonna like it 🙂
    If you don’t mind, can I submit your Brown Sugar, Coconut & Chocolate Bars photo in ?
    It’s a food photography site full of all DIY food pictures from members around the world. Or perhaps you’d like to submit by yourself? Let me know when you did, so I can share it.

  2. These have 2 of my favorites, coconut and dark chocolate. I would add almonds or walnuts if I am being good. Or, I would add marshmallows if I am being bad. 😉 I can’t wait to bake these (modified to be gluten-free of course). Thank you for sharing this scrumptious recipe with all of us.
