Chocolate Macroon Bars

14 Feb

2 cups chocolate wafer cookie crumbs

6 TBSP butter, melted

6 TBSP powdered sugar

1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk

3-3/4 cups sweetened flaked coconut

1 cup Dark Chocolate chips

1/4 cup whipping cream

 

Heat oven to 350

Grease a 13 x 9 x 2 baking pan. Combine cookie crumbs, melted butter and sugar in a large bowl. Firmly press in the bottom of prepared pan. Stir together sweetened condensed milk and coconut in a large bowl, mixing well. Carefully drop by spoonfuls over crust; spread evenly.

Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until edges of coconut begin to brown slightly. Cool.

Place chocolate chips and whipping cream in a medium microwave safe bowl. Microwave on medium ( 50 %) power 1 minute; stir. If necessary, microwave at medium in 15 second increments; stirring after each heating, until chips are melted and smooth. Cool until slightly thickened. Spread over cooled bars. Cover and refrigerate several hours. Cut into bars. Refrigerate leftovers.

Makes about 36 bars
