Do you lay in bed for hours every night browsing Pinterest like I do?  I have a serious problem in that I just can’t go to sleep at night, without filling my head with adorable craft ideas and images of the most delicious foods on earth first.

In one of my recent late night Pinterest sessions, I came across this recipe for Crescent Layer Bars.  They had just about everything I could ever want in a dessert – lots of chocolate and nuts, and best of all – a quick and easy preparation! I just knew I had to try them.

Well, I did make these Crescent Layer Bars just as described, and they were truly amazing, but I wanted to make them again with my own unique twist.  So, I swapped out a few of the ingredients for my own, and added some shredded coconut for a really nice texture and added flavor.

Coconut Crescent Layer Bars

The combination of white chocolate, butterscotch, macadamia nut and coconut is absolutely delicious.  These Coconut Crescent Layer Bars on the sweet side, so you won’t be tempted to eat the whole pan by yourself in just one sitting, which is a good thing for someone who loves dessert as much as I do.  Eat just one bar, and you’ll feel quite satisfied for a while, trust me.
