Tropical coconut and pineapple bars

To get started on these tropical magic bars, preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Prepare an 8-inch baking pan by spraying with non-stick spray and sprinkled with flour. Next, add Oreos and melted butter to a food processor and blend until crumbs are fine. Pour crumbs into bottom of prepared pan and press into the bottom. Bake at 325 for 10 minutes.

While the crust is baking and cooling, chop dried pineapple into small pieces and blend with macadamia nuts in a food processor until crumbs are formed.

Layer the remaining ingredients onto the cooked crust: Sprinkle 1 cup of white chocolate chips along the bottom, then sprinkle with coconut, and the pineapple nut mixture. Pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over the top. Decorate the top with remaining chocolate chips and a little coconut.

Turn oven temperature up to 350 degrees. Bake for 30 minutes, just until the sides are starting to turn golden in color. Cool completely, then cover with foil and chill for a few hours. When ready to cut into bars, allow them to sit at room temperature for 10-15 minutes and then slice and enjoy!

These are sure to be a hit at your next potluck or get-together. Get the full ingredient list and instructions below!
