Most of you have probably tried these or at least heard of them. Why are they so popular you might ask. Well, try them and you’ll know. These are my husbands absolute favorite, which is saying a lot, because although I might call him “a human garbage disposal”, he is super picky when it comes to desserts. I made these for him as kind of a treat the other day, and he took the left overs to work with him. I got two guys there that were on stick diets to binge, and all 5 guys finished off a plate of over half the 9 x 13 pan. Yeah that’s how good they are. So splurge and give um’ a try 🙂
 
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup and 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate morsels
  • 1 1/3 cups sweetened flaked coconut
  • 1 cup chopped nuts
Directions
Heat oven to 350 degrees, 325 degrees for glass dish. Coat 9 x 13 inch baking pan with no-stick cooking spray.
 
 
Combine graham cracker crumbs and butter. Press into bottom of prepared pan. Use the back of a spoon or the back of a measuring cup, this will make it easier. Pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over crumb mixture. Again use the back of a spoon to smooth milk over the crumbs. Layer evenly with chocolate chips, coconut, and nuts. Press down firmly with a fork.

 

Bake 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool. Cut into bars or diamonds. Store covered at room temperature.


Quick tip: Warm, these are kind of a gooey mess, so let cool before you cut them or try to handle them. Usually what I do is I let it cool for a little, then I put it in the fridge for 15 minutes or so, just to let everything firm up before I start trying to cut them into squares. Then I serve at room temperature.
