These bars are the perfect solution for a rainy day that spoils a camping trip. People will definitely say, “Can we have s’more, please?” when they try one.
Feel free to adapt the recipe if you wish – different nuts and/or butterscotch or peanut butter chips will work just as well. If you want to add marshmallows on top, reduce the coconut by 1/4 cup and add small marshmallow pieces on the top layer. Cut with a knife run under hot water to avoid the sticky bits making a mess of things.
1-1/2 cups graham crumbs
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1-1/4 cups unsweetened coconut flakes (or medium shredded)
1-1/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a 9 x 13 inch pan.
Mix graham crumbs, brown sugar and flour in a medium bowl. Pour in melted butter and mix well. Press crust in pan. Open can of condensed milk and warm in heating oven (this makes it easier to pour).
Prepare quantities of chocolate chips, coconut and nuts. Pour 2/3 of condensed milk over crust in pan. Sprinkle half of each of the nuts, chocolate chips and coconut over this, then remaining 1/3 milk and the other half of the ingredients.
Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until lightly browned on top. Let cool, then cut and serve!
