Hello Dolly Bars
35 min to prepare 12 bars
- 16 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- 3 cups graham cracker crumbs
- 2 cups dark or semisweet chocolate chips
- 2 cups pecans, roughly chopped
- 3 cups sweetened shredded coconut flake
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk
- Preheat oven to 350.
- In a medium bowl, mix together graham cracker crumbs and melted butter until well combined, and press into the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking dish.
- Sprinkle on a layer of chocolate chips over the crust, (save a few for the last step) followed by a layer of pecans, and finally a layer of coconut. Drizzle sweetened condensed milk on top.
- Bake for about 30 minutes, or until crust is golden brown. Let cool for a few minutes, and top with more chocolate chips. To cut easily, set pan in the fridge for about an hour. Enjoy!
