Tropical Chocolate Coconut Blondies

These Tropical Chocolate Coconut Blondies are the perfect dessert, for any luau or get together. They are so easy to make, and literally taste like you are on an island when you close your eyes and take a bite. You will love these.

I originally saw this recipe over at Women Who Do It All,  and it was posted there by our cute blogging friend Jocelyn, who is the mastermind behind the amazing recipes over at BruCrew Life.

You need to head over to her blog right now and see all the mouth-watering recipes she has. Anyway, when I saw this recipe I knew it was perfect for our “Beach Challenge” over at Wayward Girl’s Crafts.

The coconut adds just the right touch and gives it a “tropical” taste. We loved them.

They were so easy to make and came out perfectly. We have made them a few times now, and every time, I fall more and more in love with them, and how easy they are to make.

If you need a quick and delicious dessert, to feed a crowd, I highly recommend making these Tropical Chocolate Coconut Blondies.

what could i replace rum extract with?

For this recipe, the rum is just for extra flavoring, to give it that tropical taste, and a little kick of flavor. You could easily leave it out, and just have a more chocolate chip cookie taste.

You could also replace it with a different extract, and it would still taste absolutely delicious. Here are a few extracts we recommend replacing it with:

  • coconut extract
  • vanilla extract ( or imitation vanilla would also work)
  • almond extract

The extract will just give it that extra boost of flavor, but again, it isn’t really necessary, just delicious.

  1. I just made these. The house smells wonderful! I forgot to buy rum extract, so I used 1t dark rum, 1/2t vanilla and 1/2t butterscotch extract. Also did not use coconut M&Ms because I wanted to fool my youngest into thinking there was no coconut (which is why I didn't use coconut extract I had on hand to replace rum extract). Last week I made a version of the Congo bars. You have a great selection.
