Almond Coconut Dream Bars are three layers of cookie bliss. A cookie crust with a gooey layer with a light crunch of sliced almonds then drizzled with icing.
Look at those layers. Every bite into these Almond Coconut Dream Bars is the best bite. It is like a cookie and a pie mash up. The thin sliced almonds give this gooey cookie bar a subtle crunch. The drizzled icing takes this cookie bar over the top!
I sent these to my husbands work. They had to get out of my house because I was going to eat them all. Yep they are that good. You definitely want to put these on your holiday baking list. Some people call these Angel Bars. No matter the name they are out of this world.
It is a long recipe but just take it section by section. It is totally worth it. Plus if you are a baker you probably have nearly every ingredient in your pantry.
The recipe below is divided into sections. Before starting prep all ingredients so they will be ready on hand once you start cooking. The recipe card below defaults to numbered directions. In the directions numbers 3, 8,13,18, and 21 are —- to divide the recipe directions.
You can swap out almonds for chopped pecans. Use the same amount.
When broiling the coconut and almonds keep an eye on it so the coconut doesn’t burn. It can happen so quickly so don’t take your eyes off of it or get distracted.
Add a tablespoon of water to thin your icing. I like mine on the thinner side. Drizzle the icing over the cookie. You can use a pastry brush or spreading knife to spread the icing evenly over the top of the cookie bars.
