Pour over crust. Step 4 Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until light golden brown and set. Cool completely, about 1 hour. Step 5 In 1-quart saucepan, heat remaining 1/2 cup hazelnut spread and butter over low heat, stirring constantly, until melted. Spread over cooled bars; sprinkle with toasted coconut. Refrigerate 30 minutes or until topping is set. For bars, cut into 6 rows by 4 rows. Store covered in refrigerator. Expert Tips *To toast coconut, spread in ungreased shallow pan. Bake at 350°F 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown. *For easier cutting, use a plastic knife.
