Not much needs to be said about these Coconut Bars.  If you are a coconut fan, these coconut bars will call your name.  They are rich and indulgent and a recipe that will stay in your “great dessert” recipe file.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sweetened flaked coconut
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 9 graham crackers, crushed
  • 1 cup finely chopped walnuts (or pecans)
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup white chocolate chips
  • ½ cup butterscotch chips
  • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

Directions

  • Place oven rack at the lower-middle position and preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Line a 9×9 pan with foil and spray the foil with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Spread the coconut on a baking sheet and bake until it turns a light gold color, stirring every 4 minutes to prevent burning on the edges. Set aside.
  • Melt the butter and combine with graham cracker crumbs in a small bowl. Toss with your fingers until the butter is evenly distributed. Press the crumbs evenly onto the bottom of the prepared pan.
  • In order, sprinkle the walnuts, chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, and coconut over the graham crumbs. Pour the condensed milk evenly over the entire dish.
  • Bake until the top is golden brown, about 25 minutes. Cool in the pan on a wire rack to room temperature, about 2 hours.
  • Remove the bars from the pan using the foil or parchment handles and transfer to a cutting board. Using a sharp knife or bench cutter, cut into small bars.
