Coconut Magic Cookie Bars.
My aunt make’s these Coconut Magic Cookie Bars for Christmas every year. She used to bake them and send them to my Grandma every year and when I first tried one I loved it! I have always been a fan of coconut desserts and thought these were amazing! I still do think these are amazing. I of course asked her for the recipe and have been making them ever since, especially at Christmas time.
Did you know you can buy graham cracker crumbs at the grocery store? When I first started making these I didn’t know there was such a product so I’d always buy a box of honey graham crackers and put them in a food processor or blender to make them myself. If you don’t want to mess with making your own then by the bag of already made crumbs. I think it is a little cheaper to buy the box and do it yourself though.
