I combined a couple of my favorite recipes today, yummy!
Chocolate Chip Coconut Base & Topping
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2¹/3 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup mini chocolate chips
1 cup shredded coconut
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 350°. With electric mixer, in large bowl cream butter, sugar, and brown sugar. Add egg and vanilla; mix well. Add flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir in mini chocolate chips and coconut. Press 3/4 of dough into sprayed 15″x10″ baking sheet pan (I use my fingers sprayed with nonstick spray). Set aside and prepare the fudge filling.
In a small saucepan, stir together sweetened condensed milk and chocolate chips. Heat over low to medium-low heat just until chips are melted. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and walnuts. Mixture will be thick. Drop by spoonfuls over dough in pan. Evenly spread fudge filling over entire dough surface. Using your hands sprayed with nonstick spray, drop remaining 1/4 chocolate chip coconut dough by little bits evenly over surface of the fudge filling. Press down just a little to flatten dough bits. Bake 25 minutes. Remove and cool completely to cut into clean squares. Oh course, cut and eat sooner if you can’t wait!
