  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter, 1 cup brown sugar, instant coffee powder, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon salt until light and fluffy.
  3. Stir in flour 1/2 cup at a time, blending well after each addition. Spread evenly in prepared pan.
  4. Bake 20 minutes. Cool in pan on rack 15 minutes.
  5. In a large bowl, beat eggs and vanilla with remaining 1 cup brown sugar, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Stir in coconut and macadamias.
  6. Spread evenly over cooled baked layer. Bake 40 to 50 minutes, or until golden brown and firm to the touch.

I made this for a Hawaiian themed party. I personally don't care for coconut or mac. nuts so I didn't eat any but the folks at the party really liked them. There were only 2 or 3 squares left ...

SO GOOD! The instant coffee granules give it a unique, can't-quite-put-your-finger-on-it taste. YUMMY! I served these at a Luau themed bridal shower and they were a hit.

I had high hopes for this dessert; what's not to like with these ingredients? Well, they were really sweet and I thought the coffee made everything else taste flat. Sorry, but I won't be making...

This recipe is amazing...and I am a island girl! I tweaked it just a bit. I toasted the coconut cuz I love the buttery flavor of toasted coconut. I also added one egg to the coconut macadamia mi...

These bars are easy to make and very good but a little sweeter than I would have liked. I made them for my sister and she just loved them.

These were great, except the instant coffee I had was WAY too strong, so much so that I had to start the butter/sugar part over, then I only put a bit in. My husband's college class loved them.

Terrific! Another Hawaiian type recipe that went over beautifully at a party.

nice try but too dry
