    Just before serving, make whipped cream topping: In large bowl, beat whipping cream with electric mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla and the powdered sugar; beat on medium speed until stiff peaks form. Spread whipped cream evenly over top of chilled bars. Sprinkle with toasted coconut flakes.
  • To toast coconut flakes, spread coconut flakes in even layer on small rimmed baking sheet. Toast in 375°F oven 6 to 7 minutes or until golden brown.
