Coconut Golden Graham S’mores Bars

Confession time… I ate an ENTIRE 9×13 pan of these the other night. And even worse, I made them again the next day! Like: OH MY GOODNESS! I’m going to have to run a marathon to get rid of all those calories! But, just trust me, these are so good you won’t be able to resist! They are perfectly crunchy and chewy and just the best treat for any occasion.

So here’s the story behind these beauties:

Last summer, my family was up at Sundance Mountain Resort watching one of the Blue Bird Cafe performances that they have every summer. We were all snacking on different treats and the obvious favorite was their s’mores bars, which is a variation of these. My mom and I were eating it and, like most people who cook often, we were dissecting what went into their s’mores bars. After getting a pretty good idea, we went home to try and recreate these yummy treats. Well, let me tell. It was a success! 

Don’t these just look AMAZING?! ^^^

Our recipe is a little different. We decided to add in shredded coconut, which gives it an extra delicious flavor. And we added in more chocolate (of course). Why more chocolate? Because, why not?! The final product is an amazingly sticky, crunchy, chocolaty mess. Everything adds up perfectly and equals out to be the greatest creation of the century.  Don’t believe me on that one? Well why don’t you try them yourself!
