I think this bar needs a new name, what do you think? This came out of my recipe book called The Cookie Bible. Besides cookies, this recipe book also has recipes for brownies and bars. I made these for my Grandma’s 80th Birthday Party. After setting them out, they were gone in a matter of minutes.
(Recipe from: The Cookie Bible)
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
3/4 cup flaked coconut
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/3 cup butter, softened
3 oz cream cheese, softened
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup powdered sugar
1 (2 oz) dark sweet or bittersweet candy bar
1 tsp butter
Line 9-inch square baking pan with foil, shiny side up, allowing 2-inch overhang on sides. Set aside.
For crust, combine 1/2 cup butter, granulated sugar, cocoa, egg and salt in medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in graham cracker crumbs, coconut and pecans. Press evenly into prepared baking pan.
For filling, beat 1/3 cup softened butter, cream cheese and vanilla in small bowl until smooth. Gradually beat in powdered sugar. Spread over crust; refrigerate 30 minutes.
For glaze, combine candy bar pieces and 1 tsp butter in small resealable plastic food storage bag; seal bag. Microwave for 50 seconds. Turn bag over; microwave 40 to 50 seconds or until melted. Knead bag until chocolate is smooth. Cut tiny corner off bag; drizzle chocolate over filling. Refrigerate until firm, about 20 minutes. Remove bars from pan using foil. Cut into 1 1/2 inch squares.
Makes about 3 dozen squares.
