How To Make mo's heavenly bars

  • 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.

    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.

    Meanwhile, beat 2 tbls. butter and brown sugar. Beat in egg and vanilla. Add flour mixed with baking powder and salt.
