The 78th recipe I made from The Modern Baker by Nick Malgieri, was the one for Coconut Pecan Chocolate Chunk Bars, on page 277. (We are not publishing recipes from the book, so if you like what you see, buy the book and bake along with or without us).
The ingredient list for the bars: butter, sugar, salt, baking powder, all-purpose flour, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla, coconut, pecans, and chocolate.
These bars remind me of the Seven Layer Bars that I have been making forever and a day...you know, the ones that we make all in one pan by layering in the ingredients and baking. That said, these are much better than those (according to my sources) and not that much more effort. Might have to change it up and make some of each as you can't beat the others for convenience and if these taste better to the guys, that's a good sell as well. Chocolate, Pecans, Coconut...butter, sugar, vanilla...it's so easy to get their attention. Definitely a repeat.
If you would like to bake along or be a part of the Modern Baker group, you will find all that, plus a tab to link to the blogs posting, with the blogroll here.
