Magic Cookie Bars


This is my all time favorite recipe at Christmas time. I always make two batches since everyone seems to like them so well. My mom always made this at Christmas time, too.

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup butter
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (I use chocolate and butterscotch)
1 1/2 cups flaked coconut
1 cup chopped nuts

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees (25 for glass dish). In small bowl combine graham cracker crumbs and butter; mix well. Press crumb mixture firmly on bottom of 13 x 9 inch baking pan.

Pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over the crumb mixture. Layer evenly with remaining ingredients; press down firmly with fork.

Bake 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool. Chill if desired. Cut into bars or diamonds. Store covered at room temperature.
