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…
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 oreos 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 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 this weekend!
For research that is;-)
