Hello Dolly’s aka Magic Bars

I have a serious love for coconut.  I know it’s one of those either love it or hate it foods.  I cannot understand how someone does not like it, honestly.  But it’s their loss I guess.

These cookies are wicked easy and wicked fast to make.  The problem is waiting for them to cool before cutting into them that is the problem.  We never make it and needless to say, the pan of cookies gets all messed up!

Just as a side note with this recipe, along the idea of those really good GS cookies, Samosas.  I wonder if you could put caramel over the top of these when just out of the oven?  If anyone wants to give it a go, let me know how it turns out!


1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
½ cup butter, melted
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1-1/2 cups coconut
1 cup chopped walnuts

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together graham cracker crumbs and butter and press into the bottom of a 9 x 13-inch pan.

2. Pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over crumb mixture. Layer evenly with remaining ingredients.

3. Bake 25 to 30 minutes – until lightly browned. Cut into bars when cool. Store in the refrigerator and take out a few minutes early to soften before serving.
