These bars were good, but lacking in coconut flavor. The coconut pudding mix makes the bars moist, but doesn't add much coconut flavor. I would recommend adding a 1/2 cup shredded coconut, plus 1/2 tsp- 3/4 tsp coconut extract to the bar for a more pronounced flavor. A splash of vanilla or coconut extract in the frosting would be yummy too!

I really liked these bars. I LOVE coconut though so I added a half cup to the bars also and it turned out great.
