Pink Sin

What makes dessert sinful? Is it the guilty pleasure we derive from eating a delicious confection made with rich decadent ingredients? Do we feel bad because indulging in sugary goodness is not good for our physical well-being? Well I say, "Eat dessert!" and don't feel bad because eating dessert is good for mental health. Really. Don't we all feel a little bit happier once the craving for something sweet has been satisfied?

Take these Pink Sin bars from Great Canadian Cookies, Bars & Squares. Like most self-respecting bars, they are rich and don't lack for sugar. The buttery graham-brown sugar crust is topped with a gooey coconut filling and finished off with a silky smooth, melt-in-the-mouth pink icing. They are super and if you're a coconut fan you will feel as thought you had "died and gone to heaven" as the recipe submitter did. Have a square! Cut them small and enjoy - you'll be glad you did.
