  1. To make this recipe dairy-free, you can use coconut condensed milk instead of regular.
  2. You can use a dry gluten free chocolate cookie mix and make it, or use refrigerated gluten free cookie dough.
  3. To test for doneness, insert a toothpick into the center of the bars If the toothpick comes out clean, it is done baking. If you see batter or crumbs, the bars need to bake longer.
  4. These cookies will keep up to 4 days in an air-tight container, or up to 4 months in the freezer.
  5. Be careful when you take this out of the oven. Allow cooling completely because the coconut topping will be very hot.
