    Awww my heart is breaking that you were so homesick last week so I’m beyond happy your friends are here to help 🙂 Enjoy your time with them!!

    This looks so amazing- sugar + chocolate + coconut = epicness

  2. Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table

    Can we have this with the whiskey and the bison?

    OMG they look amazing and I just looked at the pics of the recipe and your look so so so much better. I think I need them in my life.

    Sorry to hear about your homesickness but this sounds excellent comfort food – though friends from home will always beat comfort food – enjoy their visit

    I think it’s fantastic that Australia has come to you. That’s just how I felt when my sister came to visit last year. I hadn’t seen anyone in my family for 5 years and I did a lot of that private eyewatering.

    I’m pretty sure these bars (heh) would be perfect for a bout of homesickness.

    I’d point out that these look like they could be easily veganized, but since you’re all weepy and what not, I’ll lay off.

      How is it that there is seemingly someone more snarky than myself in the world??

  6. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    I’m sorry about the homesickness darling…and very glad that some of Australia (a good part, by the sounds of it!) has come to you. That visit even exceeds these slices in delightfulness (not a word but I’m using it), although I’ll grant these look gorgeous too 🙂

    This reminds me of lumberjack cake, especially that delicious coconut topping!

    Yummy. I tend to make more Malaysian dishes here in Australia than I would when I’m back home. Just to seek comfort when I’m thinking of home haha. These slices sound deeelicious. I’ll have 2… or 20

    Awww sorry to hear about your homesickness, but if you want to feel instantly better, have you seen who our current PM is?

    As for this slice, um caramelised = lustworthy. I need this. Now.

    Friends are sweet as slices. Friends and treats are twice as nices. (See, couldn’ta done that with “bars.”)

  12. Hotly Spiced

    How exciting. I bet you’re all having the best time. Enjoy it while it lasts and yes, that’s a great looking slice xx

  13. Sarah | The Sugar Hit

    Caramel and coconut are meant to be together. This bar looks perfect! Homesickness be damned.

    slices, bars.. aiya same same lah =)

    they look awesome btw!

    At least Australians are bilingual, we understand the American terms. The look so good. I have been struggling to find something a little different for the kids lunchboxes lately.

  16. Veganopoulous

    I can never get used to saying ‘bar cookies’, for me it’s a slice all the way 🙂

    I am so happy for the internet because it taught me the word slice, and now I can use it instead of bars, and avoid sounding disgustingly Midwestern. Because while it may be nice for you to hear the voices of those from Australia, hearing Midwesterners talk in my mother tongue now makes me cringe kinda. “BARRRRRRRRRZS!”

  18. Sarah

    They sound both delicious and amazing – coconut and caramel, yes please!

    I’m sorry you were feeling homesick. 🙁 Don’t tell anyone but I’ve had emotional moments at work before too – I’m glad I’m not the only one. I bet this caramel coconut slice is just the ticket when you’re feeling down! 🙂
