tomorrow my sister is hosting a dirty 30 themed shindig for her boyfriend's birthday, I'm going to bring my hello dolly bars. the food she has planned sounds amazing, and she's agreed to share it with me so be sure to stay tuned!
I was introduced to these southern hello dolly bars over ten years ago by a dear old friend. they are easy to make and delicious - don't be scared if you don't like nuts or coconut, all the flavors merge together to create pure yumminess. I make these bars all the time, sometimes I will leave out the nuts or coconut on half the pan if someone is very particular (my dad, mostly). this is the first time I've used parchment paper - life changing. not only does it cut down on the messy cleanup of the pan, but it also made cutting them into squares infinitely easier. enjoy!
