These White Chocolate Coconut Lime Bars start with a fabulous buttery crust and are topped off with a creamy lime filling, white chocolate chips & coconut.
It seems like every summer I go on a lemon and lime baking frenzy. Probably because it’s a million degrees outside and anything lemon and lime is extremely refreshing. These White Chocolate Coconut Lime Bars are one of the results of my frenzy and I’m not sorry about them.
These bars scream summer and are perfect for any BBQ, potluck or for any occasion.
They start with a buttery, brown sugar crust and are topped with a delicious creamy lime layer made with lime juice and sweetened condensed milk (Um HELLO nectar of the gods), white chocolate chips and coconut.
If you’re not a fan of coconut, don’t count these out. My son Zach who is not a fan, thought these were delicious.
You’re going to be the hit of the BBQ, party, or wherever you take these.
HOW TO MAKE THESE BARS:
- Mix together flour, brown sugar, and melted butter and press into your 8×8 inch pan and bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes.
- Make the coconut filling by mixing in a medium bowl the egg yolks, sweetened condensed milk, zest of one lime, and lime juice. Stir in the chocolate chips and pour over crust.
- Finish them off by sprinkling the coconut on top. Bake for about 15 minutes or until the center is set. Let cool completely and chill in the fridge before serving.
I love these cold, but you can serve them at room temperature if you’d rather.
CAN I DOUBLE THIS RECIPE?
Yes of course. I love that these are made in an 8×8 pan because it makes the perfect amount for us without having a ton left over that I would end up eating. But if you need a few more, then double these and put them in a 9×13 pan. No need to increase the baking time either.
