I’m all about the quick and easy recipe.
I first tried this one at my friend Joanne’s Christmas get together and instantly loved it.
Then I saw how quick and easy it was to make, and really loved it.
It is a fast treat in my house: if I have a few mintues and want to make the kids a special after school treat, or a family night treat, or need something to bring over to someone’s house – it’s the go-to recipe.
Hello Dolly Bars
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 cup graham cracker cumbs
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup coconut
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 can (15 oz) sweetented condensed milk
Melt the butter; mix in graham cracker crumbs. Pat crumb mixture in a 9×13 inch baking pan. Sprinkle the remaining ingredients over the crumbs in order given, in layers. Drizzle the sweetened condensed milk over all. Do NOT stir. Bake at 350 for about 25 minutes. Cool and cut into bars.
Of course, I always make some modifications. I sometimes use milk chocolate chips, or white. Or a mixture. I always use more than 2 cups too:) I usually use more graham crumbs too (like 1.5 cups at least) as I don’t find 1 cup is enough. I’ve subsituted pecans instead of walnuts too…still yummy.
