5 Layer Bars

Makes 32 bars

1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips
1 1/3 cup sweetened coconut flakes
1 cup chopped nuts (pecans, walnuts, almonds, peanuts or even a combo)


Preheat oven to 350 for a metal pan; 325 for a glass pan.

Put butter in a 13x9 pan and place in hot oven for a few seconds to melt the butter. Sprinkle graham cracker crumbs evenly over the melted butter. Sprinkle with nuts, then coconut, then chips and pour condensed milk evenly over the top. Bake for 30 minutes. Let cool, cut into bars and serve.

One of my absolute favorite desserts and SO easy too. These taste similar to the famous Samoa cookie by the Girl Scouts. These are the type of bars you find yourself eating too many of! And the recipe is just so flexible, you can really make so many different types of bars by using this one as your base! Use chocolate cookie crumbs rather than graham. Try white chocolate chips and dark chocolate chips or milk chocolate and peanut butter chips. Experiment with different nuts or a combination of nuts. So many ways to make this, you could try a new one every day and not run out of ideas for weeks. So much fun and so much mmmmm!
