Chocolate Chip Coconut Toffee Bars

These are the richest, most decadent bars I’ve ever tasted and they are so fun to make. They are delicious with a glass of ice cold milk or steaming hot coffee, and one batch makes a whole bunch of bite sized squares. I had a cute little cowboy help me whip these up, and that made them even sweeter!

  • Saving about 1 1/2 cups of the dough (for the topping), press the dough into the prepared baking dish (this is easiest if your hands are a little wet).
