Pineapple Bars with Coconut Drizzle

July 28, 2014Teresa

Oh, my, Pineapple Bars with Coconut Drizzle are heavenly! In fact, they should be called Pina Colada Bars because they taste so rich and decadent. Pineapple Bars with Coconut Drizzle are ooey, gooey and so mouthwatering. They just seem to slide down your throat! Satisfaction guaranteed. 🙂

If you suffer from pineapple cravings, this dessert will certainly satisfy that and any other sweet tooth craving you may have! These jewels have a crust layer, then a pineapple layer with a streusel topping on top. After baking the bars, the Coconut Drizzle is added as a glaze. These bars are sweet comfort food at its best!

Not only that but they’re not too difficult to make, or very expensive. I carry coconut extract in my pantry. That is the only ingredient for this recipe that is out of the ordinary. Everything else you may have on hand except for crushed pineapple. Although I usually have that on hand, too.

I was trying to use up some crushed pineapple that I had in the refrigerator after making Polynesian Chicken a few weeks ago. So these dessert bars were great for that. As it happened, I didn’t have quite enough pineapple for this recipe. But I had a cut up pineapple in the refrigerator. I added a little of that diced finely to give the full amount needed.

I saw these lovely bars on Pinterest a few weeks ago. Because of my husband’s love for pineapple, I knew they would be a big hit for him. The texture in these Pineapple Bars was amazing. And the Coconut Drizzle was spectacular! There’s no actual coconut in the recipe–only imitation coconut flavoring in the icing.

I will have to make up another batch of these bars soon. John took a couple of containers of these goodies and gave them away to friends. They just raved and raved over how much they enjoyed these amazing treats.

This is a fabulous, though gooey, dessert for company and special occasions. If your family members love pineapple, then this recipe should wow them completely. I can’t begin to tell you how wonderful these bars tasted. They were yum, yum delicious!
