I love discovering new-to-me treats around the Disney resorts. It’s one of my favorite pastimes! This one I came across upon a late-night foraging session at the Beach Club one day… . Since finding it, it’s become one of my favorite unique resort eats!
The Beach Club Marketplace at Disney’s Beach Club serves a couple of different important functions for this deluxe resort.
It’s your go-to spot for grabbing sundries and souvenirs. But it’s also one of the only places besides Hurricane Hanna’s Pool Bar that offers counter service eats within Beach Club. You can see our latest review of their made-to-order sandwiches here. And don’t forget — this is also your Oreo Bon Bon hook up spot!
But today, we’re focusing on the baked goods you can find here, and one in particular — the Coconut Bar.
First off, let me say — this thing is enormous. You can’t really tell from the close up pics, but check it out by the other cookies in the case above. It’s easily shareable, or you can eat part of it, and save the rest for later. (That’s what I usually do.)
The bar cookie is built on a base of gooey graham cracker crust (yay!), with a thick layer of rich coconut and chocolate chip filling in the middle. Think Mounds bar with chocolate chips to get a good idea of what this is like.
The top is beautifully golden brown and drizzled with chocolate to make it look all pretty.
This is a truly decadent treat. I’m really surprised it hasn’t become a cult favorite for Disney fans, yet! (Or maybe it has, and I’ve just been out of the loop!)
But here, that rich coconut filling is definitely the star of the show. This is a fantastic treat with an ice cold glass of milk, or maybe a cup of coffee or tea for an afternoon snack.
