    1 hr 50 mins


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. Spread coconut flakes onto an ungreased baking sheet.
  3. Bake coconut in the preheated oven, stirring every 3 to 5 minutes, until toasted, about 10 minutes.
  4. Mix sweetened condensed milk, flour, corn syrup, brown sugar, 1/4 cup butter, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, and salt together in a bowl; fold in toasted coconut. Pour batter into the prepared baking dish.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until cooked through and slightly browned, 25 to 35 minutes. Set aside to cool completely.
  6. Heat chocolate chips and milk in the top of a double boiler over simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching. Stir in confectioners' sugar, 2 tablespoons butter, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract until frosting is smooth, 2 to 4 minutes. Spread frosting over bars. Refrigerate 30 minutes before cutting.

Yummy! I used semi-sweet chocolate chips (personal preference) and we thought these were very good. Thanks for sharing.

The name of this recipe implied it would taste like toffee. I didn't get that. To me it tasted like a spin off of Magic Cookie Bars, with the coconut, sweetened condensed milk and chocolate. These tasted good, I just didn't get the toffee flavor I was looking for. I added chopped almonds to the top of mine....

I did this last night and it was huge hit. I followed the recipe exactly and was amazed that a toffee flavor could come from toasted coconut. It was very easy and is definitely a do again. By the way I opted to melt the chocolate for the frosting using the microwave (pulsing at 30 sec intervals) and that worked well.

These were like coconut macaroons with a chocolate topping. Very tasty, but not toffee. I used unsweetened coconut and semi-sweet chocolate chips and they were plenty sweet.

These were very straight-forward, and there was nothing wrong with them at all, they just weren't "wow" bars. I subbed brown rice syrup for the corn syrup and semisweet morsels for the milk chocolate, and that was just fine.... more to my taste, in fact. They are definitely super sticky and super sweet. I also have to wonder if "toffee" is the best name for these bars.... they are more like cocoa-coconut bars or something.
