Happy Friday! I first have a quick announcement! My sweet friend Mandy over at Mandys Recipe Box has asked me to be a guest and post a recipe on her amazing blog tomorrow, Saturday March 5th! I am SO honored she would ask me to do this! I love Mandys blog so much. She is always cookin up my kind of food! I have made and posted so many of her recipes its ridiculous! So please, head over there tomorrow to check it out! While your there become a ‘Follower’ of hers so you never miss out on her great posts!
As for these sinful little treats, they are called ‘Hello Dolly Bars’, or ‘7 Layer Bars’. Whichever floats your boat. I think they should be called ‘Heaven Bars’, because they are a little piece of heaven! I am such a big fan of coconut! I think with coconut you either love it, or hate it. My hubby hates it. Dont ask me why. Heck, maybe you do too. But I dont. I cant get enough of it! : ) These bars also contain some chopped walnuts, chocolate chips, butterscotch chips (which I didnt use) over a graham cracker crust! Mmmmmm
I was too impatient to wait for them to cool after they came out of the oven, so I burned my tongue taking a bite : ( But dang, it was so worth it! These bars are my new best friend! Here’s how ya make em….
Hello Dolly Bars
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 1/4 cups finely crushed graham crackers (about 7)
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips ( I didnt use these)
1 cup shredded coconut
1 (14oz) can sweetened condensed milk
Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place the butter in an 8×8 square glass baking dish and set it in the oven to let butter melt. (about 5 minutes)
Carefully take the hot dish out of the oven and sprinkle the graham cracker crumbs evenly over the melted butter. Then layer, in order, the nuts, choc chips, butterscotch chips, and coconut. Pour the milk slowly, and evenly over the top.
Bake for 30 minutes, cool, and then cut into bars!
