Gluten Free Hello Dolly Bars are magical because they are easy and quick to bake! These chocolaty nutty bars promise to delight everyone! Great for a crowd, to give for gifts or freeze them to eat in stages. They can be made dairy free too! Change up the chocolate and nuts and add in what you enjoy. Make these gems blonde or using dark or milk chocolate morsels.
½ Stick or 4 oz butter or alternative butter sticks (Melt, Kite Hill or Miyokos)
1 Cup Graham Cracker or Ginger Snap cookies work well. (Pamela’s brand makes a great one!) In a mini food processor, OR baggie, use a rolling pin to make fine crumbs from gluten free graham crackers or cookies.

1 C Coconut flakes (more if needed to cover the top)
