Bar #33: Coconut Neiman Marcus

I know I sound like a broken record…because every.single.time I make a Neiman Marcus Bar, I say that particular version is my favorite…but people…this one really is my favorite.

This is like coconut pie but simpler.  This is  like coconut pie but dare I say, better.  This is like coconut pie…enough said.  Make them.

Shopping List
1 box of white cake mix
4 eggs
1 stick melted butter
1 box of powdered sugar (about 4 cups)
8 oz package of cream cheese, softened
2 cups sweetened flaked coconut
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease (I use Pam) one 9×13 inch pan.
In a mixing bowl, combine cake mix, 2 eggs and melted butter.  Spread in bottom of pan.
In a second bowl, beat with electric mixer, powdered sugar, 2 more eggs, and cream cheese. Stir in your coconut.  Spread coconut mixture on top of crust mixture.
Bake 35-40 minutes until edges are brown and center set (it will still be slightly wobbly in the middle).
Cool on counter 30 minutes, then refrigerate 2 hours or up to 2 days.

Slice into bars and serve.

Perfect.  Delicious.  Perfect. Fabulous. Perfect. Coconut.

    Um. Okay. I have to take a minute to gather my thoughts. A coconut pie bar? I'M ALL IN. Neiman Marcus and coconut. A match made in heaven. 🙂

    I love traditional Neiman Marcus bars, and adding coconut sounds like a fabulous idea!

    I made these this weekend for Mother's Day and left a big serving plate of them for the volunteers at church. At the end of the day…the plate was practically licked clean!

    Awesome recipe!

    These are in the oven now! I slightly tweaked it to add 1tsp of coconut extract and 3/4 cup dark chocolate chips. Mounds bars, perhaps? Thanks for your recipes! I made the lemon version last week (with the juice of the lemon as well). Delicious!
