Black Bottomed Coconut Dream Bars Recipe @pinch

Chocolate and coconut are always a wonderful flavor combination, and these bars prove that. The bottom has a chocolaty fudge taste with a cookie havelike texture. On top is a creamy filling with a strong coconut flavor. We tried them warm and after they had chilled. They were really good both ways, but we think we liked them chilled even better. I love coconut and dark chocolate together, as do several of my friends. I created this recipe for a well havetraveled friend, and he thought they tasted right out of a bakery in Europe. Brought back memories for him.
