Peanut Coconut Dessert Bars are often known as Peanut Coconut Barfi in India. And I have prepare these delicious Peanut coconut sweets using only 3 ingredients!!!

If you are beginner, and confused about your first dessert recipe then recipe of Peanut Coconut Dessert Bars are truly ultimate and never failing recipe to gain confidence about cooking desserts.
What I have observe about Indian traditional dessert is that people always get nerves to make it as they found it is too hard. They think it requires lots and lots of skills and practice to make such a tough recipes.
But my goal is to make those “so called tough dessert” so simple that anyone can cook it, and still no compromise with its authentic taste. My authentic sukhdi recipe is perfect example of it. and now this Peanut Coconut Barfi will also bring full confidence to your cooking level.
Another 3 ingredients Recipe!!! and it’s also dessert… I think 3 number is somehow lucky for me. But you know friends, since I was child, I hated 3 number. I don’t know why, but my enrollment number used to be 3 always, I always got 3rd position in exam, in any extracurricular activity, I always got a 3rd rank. Not 1st or 2nd ever???
