CHOCOLATE CHIP COCONUT BARS

I made these bars as my "Treat" for the volunteers at Hillcrest Thrift Shop when I went to volunteer myself.  The recipe originally was in Woman's Day magazine.  I made them several times in the early to mid 80s.(according to my recipe card)

When I arrived to work the middle shift, they were in the Community Room finishing their lunch.  They cheered when I walked in and said, "Just in time."   A new man (volunteer) said, "Oh, I'll put away my cookies I brought."

They were really good and I did manage to get one when I took a break.  They were all gone though when my shift was over 3 hours later.
