Seven Layer Bars #ChocolateParty

001

I have never made these bars before. I am not sure why I haven’t. I joined the #chocolateparty where the theme is coconut. I googled chocolate and coconut and this is what I came up with. The hubster said his mom made these all the time during Christmas. I think I must have had a deprived childhood because I don’t remember my mom making anything like this. I decided to bring these bars to a church function. I didn’t wait until they were completely cooled because they had to be individually wrapped for this function. I had a taste of the crumbs left over and one of the bars that just wouldn’t hold together. It was really good, if only I had refrigerated them before I cut them. Overall, I would make them again, but I would not procrastinate. I would let them cool and store them in the refrigerator until they were hard enough to cut.
