Ganache Bars

    Bars are great to make for parties and events, especially when you are tight on time.

    I made these just with the few ingredients I already had in the house for a 1 year old birthday party!
    Unfortunately, Milo is too young to enjoy such indulgences, but one day…

    I made these Gluten Free, using almond and coconut flour, if you would like to use white flour follow this recipe for the crust.
    2 sticks Earth Balance butter (for vegans, otherwise regular)
    1 cup sugar
    1 cup almond flour
    1 cup coconut flour
    2 cups shredded coconut
    1 cup chopped almonds
    Chocolate Ganache Filling:
    1 1/2 cups heavy cream
    12 oz semisweet chocolate chips
    Preheat the to 350
    Grease a tart pan, I used 9 inch square. Anything about that size will work.
    In a mixer, combine the butter and sugar until smooth.
    Mix in the flour and then the coconut and chopped nuts.
    Press 2/3 of the batter into the pan
    Bake for 20 minutes
    In the meantime, make the chocolate ganache
    Warm the milk and melt the chocolate chips together in a double broiler.
    Pour the chocolate mixture over the crust
    Crumble the remaining batter over the chocolate
    Return to the oven for 15 minutes
    Cool on a wire rack
    Birthday Boy!
