Remember Hello Dolly bars (aka) 7 layer bars (aka) magic cookie bars? WOW so many names but just as they say about the rose….. by any name would smell and in this case taste just as sweet!!!
As easy to make as rice crispy treats and maybe about ten times as good. I’m pretty sure one of them has as many calories as…… Ok, let’s make a deal we won’t worry about that and say it’s a “Guilty pleasure” That’s oh- so- good.
So enjoy! Oh…. Don’t forget the milk!!!
2 cups ground graham crackers (approx. 2 packages out of a 3 package box)
1 box family style fudge brownie mix
1 cup butter
1 cup chopped nuts (pick your favorite. I like pecans.)
1 package chocolate chips
1 package sweetened flaked coconut
14-15 ounces sweetened condensed milk
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix brownie mix with graham cracker crumbs.
Melt butter and pour on the bottom of your pan. (I used a 11×15 pan but the smaller pan the thicker the bars)
Add the brownie/graham mix and stir to moisten.
Press the mixture into pan firmly.
Top the crust with the coconut.
Then with chocolate chips.
Then with butterscotch chips.
Then with nuts (I used pecans)
Drizzle evenly and generously with condensed milk.
Bake 25-30 minutes until the milk is becoming golden brown, but before the chips completely melt.
Important: Cool COMPLETELY before cutting!
Mix pumpkin, evaporated milk, spice, eggs and sugar. Pour into ungreased 9×13 pan. Sprinkle with dry cake mix. Next sprinkle with melted butter. Top with pecans.
Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes or until firm. May take a little longer. http://www.food. com (photo courtesy of True Texas)
