Rainy Day Deliciousness!

Gusty winds and rain showers kept us home on this chilly September day. It’s been about a month since my husband proudly brought home a couple of dark brown, hairy coconuts (store-bought, of course) and insisted we make homemade coconut milk. He laboriously spent three hours grating the hard meat until it was fine enough to cream into curry last week. And today, we used the leftover coco bits to combine into a delicious dessert (or was it our entire lunch?!)

It was a family affair: daddy chopping cooking chocolate into chips; Karsten mixing the flour all over the pot and himself; mommy trying to cook the bars just right so they wouldn’t burn…

The result was chewy, not too sweet, and with just the right bit of crunch to satisfy. We scraped the pan, and our cake plates ‘til the last crumb.
