I have something super duper yummy for you today.
Do you like coconut?
I sure hope so, because these Oreo Coconut Gooey Cake Bars are all about the white stuff!
And if you don’t, just send your piece on over…
I have a serious coconut addiction going on over here 🙂
The gooey butter cake has been around for quite a while, but can you believe that I have never tried one. As in, never eaten one or made one.
That all changed earlier this week.
I baked one before the kitchen was demolished and then…it happened. One just jumped right into my mouth while I was taking pictures. And the unthinkable…a second just might have joined the first. I like to call it research instead of cheating on my diet. The extra mile I had to run was totally worth it that day 🙂
Can you blame me? Look how scrumptious those bars look. After all they had Oreo cookies and coconut all baked into them. I just couldn’t resist two of my favorite flavors all in one yummy bar.
First I added Oreo cookie chunks to the cake dough. Yum!!!
Then it got even better with a topping of coconut and condensed milk.
Is it bad that I wanted to eat it by the spoonfuls???
And then my fav M&M’s in easter colors got sprinkled on top!
Don’t ask where the leftover ones are…I have no idea 🙂
These bars had to leave my house right away! I’m pretty sure I would have cheated on the diet again…
and probably again!!!
And I don’t think my legs would appreciate all the running they would have to do to work it all off.
I double dog dare you to make these Oreo Coconut Gooey Cake Bars this weekend!
For research that is. 🙂
