If you like coconut, these bars are very easy to make and tasty! It doesn't get any easier than this. Feel free to use pecans in place of walnuts, if you like. Also, try tinting the remaining coconut with food coloring prior to sprinkling. Pastel colors make a pretty presentation for Easter! Enjoy!
