Delicious and fudgy bars with a macaroon center!


Sliced Fudgy Macaroon Bars on parchment paper.

Coconut. I feel like you either love it or hate it. I used to hate coconut. The texture and taste of it would just gross me out. I slowly started liking it with Almond Joy Bars. And now I love it!

If you love amazing chewy fudgy brownies and macaroons then this recipe is for you. Layers of fudge brownie and a sweet coconut macaroon center. It is the best of both worlds combined into one! I served these at a gathering and everyone was raving about them. They were so easy to put together and baked perfectly. Just make sure that you serve them with a big tall glass of milk! πŸ™‚

  1. I just want to say I am all new to blogging and honestly enjoyed you’re web-site. Almost certainly I’m likely to bookmark your blog . You surely have amazing articles. Cheers for sharing with us your website page.

  2. Alyssa, I’m so glad you hopped on the coconut train because these bars look phenomenal!

  3. In the Fudgy Macaroon Bar recipe no eggs are listed in the list of ingredients but in the directions it says add eggs. How many?

  4. What eggs??? No eggs are listed as an ingredient???? Making these right now and stuck???

      1. My sixteen year old daughter said they were “da bomb”! They are a new favorite of mine!! Thanks!!

  5. Looks decadent! I noticed the instructions say to add eggs but the list of ingredients doesn’t list eggs. Also the list of ingredients includes almond extract but the instructions don’t. Is it optional?

    1. Geez this is what I get for typing up recipes at 2 am! Sorry! The almond extract is optional and it is 3 eggs, lightly beaten.

  6. Am I the only one that noticed? You have “add the eggs” in the recipe but no eggs are listed in the ingredients…

  7. Oh my goodness. Look at that chocolate. I’d devour this in no time.
    Have a beautiful Monday Alyssa!

  8. The fact that you turned a macaroon into a bar just blew my mind! These look incredible! Pinned πŸ˜€
