"Hello, Yummy!" Bars
These bars have been called anything from Hello Dolly Bars, Magic Cookie Bars, to Seven Layer Bars. I made them from a childhood memory, so I titled as I wanted :)
1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter, cut into large pieces
3 cups graham crackers crumbs (about 16 graham crackers, pulsed in a food processor)
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups butterscotch chips
1 1/2 cups shredded coconut
1 1/2 cups pecans, coarsely chopped
2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk (most of a small can)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cut the butter into tablespoon sized pieces, lay in the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking pan and place in the oven until just melted when stirred (this takes about 7 minutes, be careful not to brown the butter). Add graham cracker crumbs. Mix and then press evenly into the bottom of the baking pan.
Add all of the remaining ingredients, except the sweetened condensed milk to a large bowl. Gently stir the chips through pecans together and then mound on top of graham cracker base, spreading out the ingredients evenly. Pour sweetened condensed milk over whole mixture.
Bake in oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the top is light brown. "Hello, Yummy!"
