I'm always looking to make a new treat for a program that I bake for. How else can I get lots of people to sample my goodies! With lemon being one of the altime favorite flavors, I try to come up with yummy lemon flavored treats. I just made this up this past week, and they got rave reviews. Hope you like them too!

How to Make Lemon Coconut Bars

Step-by-Step

  1. pre heat oven to 325. Spray 10"x15"x1" deep pan with no stick spray, I use the canola oil spray.
  2. Combine cake mix, melted butter, eggs, lemon juice and lemon zest in bowl and stir to combine. Press mixture into prepared 10"x15" pan and bake for 12 to 15 minutes in 325 oven. Do not brown it, the top should feel dry when touched. Remove from oven and cool to room temp.
  3. Once it is cooled, top with vanilla chips, sliced almonds than sprinkle coconut over the top. Now drizzle the sweened condensed milk over the top. Place back in 325 oven and bake 15 to 20 minutes, till golden brown.
  4. While the final baking is being done, make the glaze. Mix powdered sugar and lemon zest and juice together. Should be thick but runny. Using a pastry brush, spread glaze over the top of the slightly cooled bars. When completely cooled cut into desired sized bars and enjoy!
