Magical Coconut Cookie Bars
Before going vegan, magic cookie bars (or 7-layer bars, or dream bars or whatever you called them where you were from) were one of my favorite treats. Looking back, I realize I never actually baked them when I was younger, and I did a lot of baking. Maybe they were even more special because I didn’t have them that often, and also because I got to enjoy the fruits of someone else’s labor.
Whatever the reason, the fact is that I love them. I’ve been working on a pretty awesome version with a homemade vegan sweetened condensed milk, but I always forget or am too busy to retest them. I finally tried this version from “Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar” and I’m so glad I did! They’re not hard to make at all, and they’re really, really, really delicious.
In wrapping up the week of food ideas for the Super Bowl, I wanted to find a dessert that wouldn’t require a knife and fork, and that would also be decadent enough to follow up some fried “chicken”. I think these bars fit the bill. I can’t imagine anyone would be disappointed with a tray of these in front of them.
