Bars, Pie

Coconut Cream Pie Bars with Chocolate Ganache

And we meet again! This bars are incredibly amazing. You can also just make it into a pie plate, and make Coconut Cream Pie with Ganache on the bottom. First time I made these was on 2015, while visiting my sister. I remember how fast they were gone once I served them. My parents, my aunts and uncles and my sister devoured these. Truly…I wish I could make them more often, but there is so much to bake!!

On the recipe, it is preferable to make this on a 9×13 inch plate. The first time I made them was on a 9×15 inch (that is what my sister had) and it is totally fine. Keep in mind the smaller the dish, the taller they will be, and the larger the dish, the shorter these will be. You could probably half the recipe and make it into a 8×8 inch square dish. Just play with it and eye it a little bit. If your pans are not exactly the same proportion then you can measure how much thick you want your crust to be and how much of the chocolate and coconut pudding you want to pour into the dish.

You can also hold on to the frosting, cut the bars with just the pudding (when it is completely set and cold) and then top each individual piece. I think this way you are able to play more with the frosting and how it looks. Frosting the entire sheet at once will work just as well. Just please, read the notes. Use good quality Heavy Whipping cream such as Land-o-Lakes, it whips better than a low fat/quality whipping cream and you will absolutely notice the difference. See how velvety and smooth the frosting looks? Whipping until you have the right consistency, not over whipping, and using a high quality cream are key to delicious frosting.

Please go ahead and give these a try. If you like Coconut, Coconut cream pie, chocolate, and short bread. this is the right path for you! If you have questions or notes please leave it on the comments at the end of this post. We can all improve this recipe and make it even more AMAHZING!
