Hello Sweetheart

There are a whole bunch of reasons why this Saturday’s treat will win your Sweetie’s heart! It makes no difference whether you call them Hello Dollies, Magic Bars, or 7 Layer Bars. What matters is how incredibly yummy they are! These easy to make goodies are everything plus a little bit more guaranteed to make your Sweetheart’s day!

Ingredients:

½ cup butter (melted)

1½ cups graham cracker crumbs

1 cup coconut flakes

1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

1/2 cup red M&Ms

1/2 cup butterscotch chips

1/2 cup Heath Bits

1 cup pecans, chopped

1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

While the oven is preheating, melt the butter in a 9×13 baking pan.

Sprinkle the graham cracker crumbs evenly over the butter in the bottom of the pan, press lightly into the butter.

Evenly cover the crust with the coconut flakes, chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, and pecans. Drizzle the sweetened condensed milk evenly over the top.

Bake for 20-25 minutes. Watch it closely until the edges are golden brown. You want to be careful not to burn the coconut and it can happen very quickly.

Let cool about 5 minutes and run a knife around the edges of the pan to prevent sticking.

Allow to cool completely before slicing into squares.

It’s a little earlier than Fat Tuesday, but this weekend we will be baking up these delicious pastries. And with a few dipping sauces on the side, we will be creating our own little party.
