Oreo Coconut Gooey Cake Bars

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 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. :-)

    Oh my girl. I want one! Coconut is never a big deal in this house, except for me. Those would be quite dangerous, as I would end up eating the entire batch!

    I love it when I look around your site and stumble on something I’ve not seen before. I made these immediately yesterday and am so glad I did. Taste super and both my husband and son were thrilled with them. A perfect option leading up to Easter and using those coconut M&M’s!! Nice that Easter is later this year so I’ve got plenty of time to repeat this recipe. Of course I don’t ever need an excuse to make one of your recipes. You continue to amaze me!
