Coconut Chocolate Bars

Decadent, delicious and sinful. But, it’s the holidays and you deserve one.

Ingredients

1/2 pound dark chocolate broken into pieces

1/2 pound milk chocolate, broken into pieces

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

2 cups crushed graham cracker crumbs

1-1/2 cups whole shelled walnuts

1/3 cup packed light brown sugar

2/3 cup unsalted butter, melted

One 14 ounce package coconut

One 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk

Directions

Place chocolate in a heat proof bowl and set it over simmering water. Allow chocolate to melt. Stir in vanilla. Set aside.

Place the graham cracker crumbs, ½ cup of nuts and the brown sugar in a food processor and process until nuts are finely chopped. Add butter through feed tube and pulse several times to combine ingredients.

Press the mixture into a foil lined 13 x 9 x 2 inch pan, leaving an overhang, and bake for 10 minutes in a preheated 350F oven.

Meanwhile combine the coconut and condensed milk in another bowl  and spread it evenly over the graham cracker crust. Chop the remaining walnuts coarsely and spread over the coconut.

Bake for 10 minutes.

Spread chocolate evenly over the top. Refrigerate for several hours.

Lift the foil out of the pan and peel away.

Cut into bars.

    What about almonds instead of walnuts? Should the be shopped or slivered or sliced?
