Coconut Squares

Wednesday, March 2, 2016

Chocolate and coconut compliment each other so well. My siblings are very picky and only like simple dessert. These coconut cake squares are easy to make and a delicious (and my siblings will actually eat them). This recipe makes A LOT of squares, and it can serve 10 people. I make this when I am having large group gatherings or work potlucks.
