Instructions

Make the lime frosting

  • In a large bowl, whip the softened butter, powdered sugar, milk, lime juice, and lime extract together until light and fluffy.
  • Add in a little lime green food coloring or mix some yellow food coloring and some green to create that perfect Starbucks coconut lime bar frosting color and stir.
  • Frost the cooled-down coconut bars, and drizzle with melted white chocolate, you can use a piping bag for this, a ziplock bag, or even a spoon if you don't mind thicker streaks. Sprinkle with more coconut, slice, and enjoy!
  • If you prefer these chilled, chill in the fridge until set and enjoy with a tall gladd of milk or your favorite Starbucks coffee!
