Simple, delicious and looking like a Korean pork-cutlet (tonkatsu), these bars are a lovely way to end a Thai inspired meal with dear friends at ones favorite coffee shop...or just a lovely snack for any time of day, in any location.
Crush 3 cups of a cookie (I used 'Diget' - an almost graham cracker like cookie with chocolate covering one side). To the 2 cups of cookie crumbs add 3/4 cup of melted butter and 1/4 cup sugar. Once butter is incorporated, spread mixture onto a pan (I lined mine with parchment paper..., but it's not too necessary--you also may need more than one pan if you're using a toaster sized oven) bake for about 10 minutes to firm up. Let the crust cool slightly before spreading/pouring a healthy amount of sweetened condensed milk on top. You want a healthy layer of the milk before adding a cup or so of choco-chips (or chopped chocolate bars) and topping with coconut. Once this is all compiled, slip the pan back into the oven for 15-20 minutes until the coconut is toasty and the smells in your home are fabulous! Enjoy with good friends and cup of coffee if you so desire.
