Hello Dolly Bars
If you don't know what those are, don't worry, I didn't either. When she began to describe these treats, I recognized the ingredients, even though I didn't know the name. I've seen the simple confection go by seven layer bars and magic bars. They probably have other names, too, but hello dollies were what em asked for.
Now, I'm not a huge coconut fan. Let me rephrase that. I absolutely detest coconut. Much like coffee, I love the way it smells, but I can't handle eating it. I don't like the way it feels on my teeth. I know. I'm insane. But they're my daughter's favorite, and she's been asking for one every ten minutes since they came out of the oven. She swears that even people who don't like coconut and pecans love hello dollies. And my husband, who doesn't like coconut either, has been matching her bar for bar.
