Yummy Toffee Coconut Cookie Bars

Over the weekend, Hubby and I were sitting in bed watching our usual Saturday night crime shows. (I call it Crime Time Saturday) Anyway, he left to get his laptop and disappeared! I didn't even realize how long he was gone until he came back with a smile on his face. He told me he had dessert in the oven!

Good hubby! He knows how much I love surprises and dessert! Once the timer went off, he came back with a huge plate of these and a cold glass of milk to munch on while we watched Law & Order SVU. I was in heaven!

So in honor of his yummy surprise, I wanted to share it with you.

Toffee Coconut Cookie Bars

• 1 cup butter, softened
• 1 cup sugar
• 1 cup brown sugar
• 3.5 cups flour
• 2 teaspoons baking soda
• 1 teaspoon vanilla
• 1 cup toffee bits (I used Heath Bits O'Brickle toffee bits)
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 cup shredded coconut
• 3 eggs

Preheat over to 350.

Lightly grease 9x9 baking pan.

Beat all dry ingredients in a large bowl until blended.

Add wet ingredients gradually and beat until blended.

Pour into greased baking pan and spread evenly.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.

Enjoy with a cold glass of milk : )
