WOW. I was trying to duplicate the very addictive Sheila's Dream Bars from Potbelly, and these are EXACTLY what I was looking for! I made a few tweaks and they were to die for. I added a couple tablespoons of water to the crust mixture to hold it together. I substituted milk chocolate chips for the coconut (personal preference), and used half pecans and half walnuts. Fantastic, a definite keeper!! NOTE: This recipe DOES NOT double well. I learned that the hard way! :( It also seems to set up better in a stone crock than a glass dish.
You need to sub out Chocolate chips for cocconut, and add apple toffee. Thats whats in the potbelly dream bar.
They're not even close to Sheila's Dream Bars at Potbelly Sandwich Shoppe but have to say that they made a yummy recipe anyway! Our family likes that they are sweet and salty (the crust gives you the salty). I did add 1 cup chocolate chips and liked that.
My husband really liked this recipe, even though I thought the topping was a little too sugary sweet for me. It was pretty good though, considering that I didn't read the recipe right and I forgot to bake the crust before I poured the top layer on. It probably would have been even better if I had followed the directions.
DELICIOUS!! Exactly what i was looking for!
