Raise your hand if you have leftover Easter candy.

I should probably raise both my hands. I still have leftover Halloween and Christmas candy. For me candy it’s mostly considered an ingredient, not a snack per-se.

Of course I eat some now and then, but most of the time I use the candy in my baked treats, from cookies and bars to cakes and brownies. And in case you haven’t figured out yet, I LOVE Hershey’s seasonal kisses.

I stumbled upon the coconut creme kisses in the Easter isle a couple of weeks ago. Since coconut and chocolate is one of my top 5 combos I HAD to have some. The first time I bought some I was a little shy, got back home with just 2 bags. And yes, the week after that 10 more bags came home with me. That should last me for a while.

These coconut creme kisses are as good, or maybe even better than Almond Joy, one of my favorite candy bar.

These coconut creme kisses chocolate bars are for coconut lovers. They have a strong coconut flavor with a little bit of chocolate thrown in there to balance everything. And I don’t mean, just the chocolate in the kisses, no, I actually added some Easter Hershey’s eggs into the mix as well.

These are definitely not your everyday magic bars, even if the directions are similar.

    Roxana, this sounds delish! I need to go on a search for these. I didn’t see them with all the other Easter chocolates. Is it just regular condensed milk or sweetened condensed milk you are using?

    Thanks,
    Linda

    Roxana…do you need the walnuts for this recipe?? Unfortunately I can’t eat any thing that requires that much chewing (TMJ issues) would be able to handle the shredded coconut not any other nuts though..unless it’s peanut butter!! Thanks.

      Hi Wendy,
      You can finely chop the walnuts, they do soften a bit when baking. If you prefer nut free I’d use more coconut and maybe throw in some chocolate chips

    I’m a fellow lover of coconut + chocolate, and I’m all over everything you have going on here, especially the graham cracker twist! I have WAY too much Easter candy, but will be increasing my supply so that I can stock up on these kisses.

    I thought they looked a little bit magical when I first saw the photos on Facebook or Twitter. Soooo good.

    Pinned! I love this! I am slowly becoming more and more of a fan of coconut and these look like a must-try.
