Coconut Dark Chocolate Chip Blondies

These bars were made out of necessity. 🙂 I had to do something with the coconut that was left over from my Easter baking. I couldn’t just let it dry out or let it sit on the shelf until I forgot about it and it dried out! So, I made these. 🙂

The dark chocolate chips and coconut are great by themselves, but put them together in a blondie and they are amazing. If you have left over coconut, I highly recommend that you try them!

Yum, dark chocolate and coconut! Next time I’m going to try toasting the coconut first to bring out more of the coconut flavor.

Letting it dry out would have been wrong. Good choice. They look and sound tasty.
