How to make Fantasio Bars With Graham Cracker Crust?

Preheat the oven to 350 F degrees.

In a saucepan, melt the butter.

Off the heat, add in some graham cracker crumbs and sugar, and stir.

Press the resulting mixture at the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking dish.

Bake for about 10 minutes, until firm.

In a bowl, mix coconut and condensed milk.

Spread the resulting mixture over the baked crust and bake for 12 more minutes.

Set the dish aside for 10 minutes or more to cool.

Melt your chocolate in the top of a double boiler over simmering water. Stir frequently so the chocolate doesn’t get stuck to the sides and scorch.

Add your almonds to the melted chocolate and stir.

Add the resulting mixture on top of the coconut layer. Let the chocolate cool before serving.

How can I melt chocolate without a stove?

If you don’t have a stove at your disposal and can’t follow the recipe, no worries. There are other ways to melt chocolate. The easiest way to do it is to microwave chocolate chips or small pieces. Don’t forget to take the dish out of the microwave frequently and stir the mixture so that it doesn’t scorch.

How do I store Fantasio bars?

Fantasio bars are delicious when they’re cool. If you have some leftovers, you can store them in the fridge. That will allow the chocolate to solidify even more and create a lovely crunch. You can also freeze some bars for later if you don’t see yourself finishing the whole batch.

How can I alter this Fantasio bars recipe?

There are many ways you can change the recipe to satisfy your cravings. For starters, these Fantasio bars have a strong coconut flavor, but that doesn’t have to be your case. Replace the coconut with something of your choosing. You can also forego the almonds altogether or replace them with another nut.
