“Two ingredients, super-simple, pretty good stuff. From the Food Network show Mexican Made Easy. Like Hello Dollies without the nuts, chocolate chips, or graham cracker crust. I had a craving for coconut and this helped meet the craving head on!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Spray an 8x8 inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Mix coconut and evaporated milk together in a bowl.
  3. Pour into baking dish and then smooth out (make sure it is level so that it cooks evenly).
  4. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until browned.
  5. Cool completely and then cut into bars.
  6. This is how the recipe/show said to do it, mostly. Some people have found that a package of coconut does not yield 5 1/2 cups, but the recipe works with less coconut. I found that I cooked mine for 25 minutes, cooled it, then ended up putting it back in the oven for another 10 minutes. Next time I am going to put it in a 9x13 pan, since I like the toasted coconut best. Other people found that they could drop tablespoonfuls on cookie sheets and bake them for 15 minutes or so.
