Chocolate Macaroon Bars is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love these bars and have made them alot lately. My mother in law in diabetic and so I replaced the semi sweet chocolate and coconut with diabetic chocolate and unsweetened coconut and she loves them so much that when I know she is coming I make them for her. I love everything about Wilton and have learned so much more options to bake and have learned new sweets to make my daughters class at school for holidays. I am so glad I found out about this site and the amazing recipes. And I started by just buying a cake decorating set to decorate gingerbread cookies for my little ones classroom. I would love to be able to afford the decorating kits as I have been self teaching about cake decorating and this prize set would help me out alot. Thank you all at Wilton for coming up with these amazing products.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I liked the recipe but I will be tweaking it a little bit next go around... -I set the stove at 350 although I didn't see that indicated anywhere -The shortbread was so-so; will most likely go for a traditional shortbread next attempt. -The coconut layer was not macaroony at all and was thin and crisp...not sure what happened there. Overall has great potential to be awesome but for now its only so-so

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious! It was a winner in the staffroom and I enjoyed trying a new recipe especially becuase it didn't require any speciality products. All of the ingredients were already on my shelf. I am always glad to find a recipe that does not have a long cooking time. I made this late after work one night and I didn't have to stay up all night waiting for it to be cooked. I would definitely bake this again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from After I found out I did not have to have a food processor and could use an old fashioned pastry cutter, I made these and they are great. Had to hide them from the great grandchildren and I probably gained 10 lbs. Next time I will sprinkle a little light brown sugar over the top prior to baking.
