Coconut in all forms is a favorite of mine, and these bars combine it with a buttery pastry base, pecans, and bittersweet chocolate chunks. Of course you can use chocolate chips, but the chocolate chunks allow you to use a much better quality chocolate in the topping.
Keep these at room temperature if you are serving them within a day. If not, wrap and freeze them and make sure to defrost and bring to room temperature before serving.
