How to Make Mo's Heavenly Bars

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    Line a 9 x 9 inch pan with tin foil.

    Crunch up Little Debbie bars with rolling pin--I did it with them still in the packages. Melt 4 tablespoons (half a stick) butter. Mix with the Little Debbie crumbs, then make a crust.
  2. Cover with 1/2 coconut (more if you like!) Break chocolate bar into equal pieces where it's scored. Distribute evenly on crust. Chocolate chips would also work--the bars were on sale at the 99 cent store!)
    Bake about 8-10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, beat 2 tbls. butter and brown sugar. Beat in egg and vanilla. Add flour mixed with baking powder and salt.
  4. Spread mixture over crust and top with 1/2 cup coconut, or more. Bake about 20 minutes.
