Tropical Orange Creamsicle Bars

Tropical Orange Creamsicle Bars are amazing.

These cookies are absolutely spectacular! Tropical Orange Creamsicle Bars are such a lovely dessert. If you love orange-flavored anything, you will find these delicious bar-type cookies scrumptious and mouthwatering.

We had a large celebration luncheon at our church last Sunday and some of the folks working the facilities were exhausted after all the set up and take down. I thought I would make up some goodies to say a special thanks to some of those involved. Every time I’ve been to the grocery store, the box of Orangesicle Cookie Mix has been calling my name! I’ve been thinking about making this dessert for some time and just needed an excuse to do so! I thought the addition of the dried fruits, coconut and vanilla chips would turn this cookie mix into a culinary delight and I was right! Everyone who sampled these bars thought they were sensational.

If you’re looking for an amazing bar-type cookie loaded with orangesickle frosting and coconut then look no farther than this delightful recipe. Tropical Orange Creamsicle Bars are an excellent choice for tailgating parties, holiday baking or anytime your sweet tooth is calling! You will be drooling over these bars before you even finish one bite.

      Oh, thank you, Esther! Everyone who tasted this dessert thought it was wonderful. The hardest thing is finding some of the dried fruits–especially the mangos. I’ve found them in the dried fruit sections and also in the produce sections with nuts. I hope you enjoy them.
