Raspberry Coconut Magic Bars Recipe (1)

My Dad celebrated his 60th birthday on Friday. My brother celebrated his 30th birthday on Friday. Confusing? Well get this…they have the same name too! And quite typically {as in always} they really don’t have the same vision for what they want to do on their birthdays. Solution? We party for a couple days straight!

My Dad is a big coconut fan so anything I make with coconut he loves.I knew I was going to make up a batch of Raspberry Coconut Magic Bars for his birthday but he surprised me with a request for a German chocolate cake {usually it’s my Nana’s Carrot Cake}. I had my Nana’s German chocolate cake and frosting recipe so I whipped that up…and had totally forgotten how addictive the frosting is. Totally. Addicting. Bryce found out that he L-O-V-E-S coconut! And frosting. He ate, by the spoonful, and I am not joking here, about a half a cup of German Chocolate frosting before it made it to the cake. Seriously.

When I took it away from him, he asked me, and I quote, “Can I have some for snack then?” Oh my goodness. I explained that it was supposed to go on Grandpa’s cake to which Bryce responded, “I don’t want cake. I want frosting!” I hear ya honey – I hear ya. How do you explain to a four year old that the sole reason for cakes is so that we can eat the frosting? It’s simply not dignified to eat frosting by itself. Now, of course, if you’re alone…totally different story. Or, if you’re four…

Anyways, the cake and most of the frosting made it to my sister’s house for after dinner. My Dad had fun trying to blow out the sparkler candles and then the boys stepped in and giggling away, attempted to blow them all out as they kept re-lighting. Good times!

I guess you’re wondering when the Raspberry Coconut Magic Bars came into play right? Well Saturday we had a BBQ at my house for my brother and he requested fruit salad instead of a cake. I saved the bars for Saturday so we would all have something sweet to snack on. Well, most of the bars were saved for Saturday…

If you have a coconut lover in your life – these bars are PERFECTION! They start out with a graham cracker crust and lots of coconut. The magical ingredient, sweetened condensed milk, is poured over the top and then it’s thrown in the oven. Layer on your favorite flavor of preserves {blackberry is super good too!}, some chopped nuts of your choice {we went with pecans} and then drizzle on some chocolate.

If you’ve got bored kids around – this is a great recipe for them to help out with. Bryce was able to spread the preserves and sprinkle on the pecans…
