Watch out! These easy bars are surprisingly rich. Home cook GFMama has a tip for cutting them into servings: "For easy cutting line the pan with wax paper or foil. Leave about 1 inch over hang on the ends. Place ingredients inside allow to set as directed. Remove from pan by edges of foil/paper and use a pizza cutter to cut into nice smooth squares. We use this method with all desserts/bars that need to be cut!"

Recipe creator Robin J says, "This is a very simple coconut macaroon recipe that uses only 4 ingredients. Condensed milk gives it a richer flavor than most."
