Hello Dolly Bars

I thought most everybody had grown up eating dolly bars, but when I made these and took them to a party everyone wanted the recipe. I was shocked that nobody had them before now.  They had been a tradition during the holidays.  Well I left the party with an empty plate and a bunch of whiny women whose jeans were now too tight to button! 

Hello Dolly BarsIngredients:
1 1/2 cups crushed graham crackers (about 8 graham crackers)
2 cups of chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups of shredded coconut
1 1/2 cups of chopped pecans
1 14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup of butter

Method:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Melt the butter in a saucepan.
Pour melted butter into an 11x7 or 8x8 cake pan.
Sprinkle graham cracker crumbs into pan, and mix well with melted butter to form a crust.
Layer on top of graham-cracker crust chocolate chips, coconut and pecans.
Evenly pour sweetened condensed milk over everything.
Bake in oven for 25 to 30 minutes, top should be light brown.
Let cool in pan for at least half an hour, cut into bars and serve.

Variations: Some recipes use butterscotch and chocolate chips. Likewise, you can use walnuts or any other nut you like as well.
