After shopping all day with my closest friend, I’m a bit tired… So I decided to make the simplest of simplest recipes. This is actually the first time that I’ve made it, but I’ve had it many times at potlucks ( my sister-in-law makes it often)
Yummy Layer Bars
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup of coconut flakes
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1/2 cup mini marshmallows
1/4 cup butterscotch chips ( only because I had them)
Preheat oven to 350. Line a 9 x13 in pan with aluminum foil, overlapping on the ends (for easy removal) & spray lightly with cooking spray. Mix butter with graham cracker crumbs & pat gently into the bottom of the pan.
Pour sweetened condensed milk over butter/ graham mixture and spread with a spatula. Sprinkle remaining ingredients in to order in which they are in the recipe. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
Remove & let cool.
Using the overlapped ends of the aluminum foil, pull the entire bar out & place on a cutting board, allowing to cool completely.
Cut into bars when fully cool.
These are yummy & gooey and oh-so-wonderful!!! I was afraid that they would stick, so I only placed them single-layer on the platter. I’m thinking that maybe next time I’ll try the recipe with 2 cups graham cracker crumbs, possibly making a sturdier base.
I highly recommend trying this recipe.. it literally takes minutes to get into the oven.
maybe next time I’ll time myself….hmmm…..?????
now..I’m off to wrap all of my treasures that I found today!!!
