NEW ARRIVAL en France!! Nouveau in France!!!!

Okay friends and fellow bakers...
Happy is the day now... You can make MAGIC bars and other flaked coconut recipes as this new item has just recently appeared in your local supermarkets such as Atac, Monoprix and I am sure some others, as well... It can be found in the baking section.. with the pepites au chocolat and nuts... GREAT!!! If you are interested in making that deadly as sin recipe, "magic bars," now just google it.. It's very easy... 

**** moist (flaked) coconut as opposed to the common dry, toasted coconut flakes you find all over France for baking!  It's equivalent to Baker's Coconut.. YUMMMM!!!!  Surprise your French friends with the sweeter than sweet dessert- Magic Bars!!!




Moist and tender sweetened coconut flakes... YUMMM!!!! So glad it's here! Bienvenue en France!!!
This is the one that has been here forever now... It's dry, flaked (shredded) coconut, also for baking.

OOOOH... magic bars with coconut!

I just went and got one from the little care package you made me! Now, I am sure everyone is jealous ;-)

Ooooh... I want some! :-)

But don't worry, I won't steal them... *g* I'm just here to thank you your kind comment on Lily's birth announcement.

So sorry it took me so long, I'm just trying to return to "normal" blogging behavior, now that my life comes back to "sort of normal", too. *g*

Why has this been available FOREVER in the Alsace but not in Paris. Hmmmm, strange!

what's a magic bar? is it like a magic brownie? :-)

Milk Jam,
Thanks for stopping by and for commenting! I looked up magic brownies and don't think they are the same as Magic bars (also called seven layer bars)... They are made with a layer of graham cracker cookie crust, then pour on a can or two of sweetened condensed milk, next add the flaked coconut on top of condensed milk.. next top it off with white choc and choc chips - you can also add walnuts or pecans, too.. Bake in the oven until it's done... It contains thousands of calories, no doubt, but it's YUMMMMY!!!!
