Looking for a delicious new dessert to try out this weekend? Look no further than these delectably chewy, chocolate-y, coconut-y shortbread bars! Made with few ingredients including decadent chocolate chips and crunchy sweet coconut chips. We used Enjoy Life baking chocolate chips which are dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free and nut-free. We also used bare Snacks Toasted Coconut Chips for the perfect crunchy texture and flavor. Bare's chips are baked, never fried with no added oils, making them a light addition to the top of these bars. With only 5 ingredients, these bars are simple to make and eat. Enjoy! —Contributor
