Cookie Friday: Mound Bars

Happy Cookie Friday, everyone!  If you're a coconut lover, you're going to want to try this recipe immediately.  I found the recipe for Mound Bars in a local farm publication.  If it's from a farm cook, it's got to be good.

But I should warn you, this treat is rich.  Plan on cutting it up into small squares, because just a couple bites will satisfy your sweet tooth.  In fact, the chocolate frosting is so rich, my husband suggested replacing the frosting with a drizzle of dark chocolate.  I'll probably try that the next time I make these. Oh yeah. I'll definitely be making these Mound Bars again.
