Chocolate Coconut Shortbread Bars

Chocolate Coconut Shortbread CookiesThese makes a very rich treat, but very simple to make!



1/2 pound butter at roomtemperature

1/2 cup organic sugar

2 cups all-purpose flour

Pinch of sea salt


12 oz. bag dark chocolate chips

12 oz. bag shredded coconut

1 can sweetened condensed milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line a 9×13 pan with parchment paper allowing the edges to hang over.  In an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment cream butter and sugar.  Add flour and salt.  Pat down into the prepared 9×13 pan and bake for 15-20 minutes.  Pull the crust out and while hot sprinkle half the chocolate chips and then the coconut.  Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips and drizzle the sweetened milk over the top.  Bake for another 30 minutes.  Let cool and then remove using the over hung edges of the parchment paper as a sling to pull the bars out of the pan.  Cut into bars and serve.
