Dark Chocolate Coconut Bars

This recipe was inspired by my homemade almond joy bars I shared a few years ago. It combines darks chocolate with a deliciously sweet coconut filling, and is made with only 6 ingredients.

These coconut bars are so easy to make, and come together in one big bowl. I love keeping these in my freezer or fridge for a quick sweet fix during the day!

I made this recipe for Passover a couple weeks ago and it was such a huge hit. You can top them with chopped nuts for an added crunch, or even make them in muffin liners.
