Million Dollar Bars

My daughters and I love to go to Zupas.
My favorite thing to order is the Million Dollar Bar. It is this oooey gooey square of deliciousness made
of chocolate, nuts, coconut and graham cracker. Here is my version of this wonderful bar cookie.
Million Dollar Bars
1 stick butter
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 cup shaved coconut
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup coarsely chopped nuts
1 can sweetened condensed milk

Melt the butter and mix with the graham cracker crumbs. Pat half of the mixture into a 8x8 square baking dish that has been lined with foil and buttered. Mix the coconut, chocolate chips and the nuts and place on the crumb mixture. Top with the remaining crumbs and pour the sweetened condensed milk over the top. Bake 350 for 30 minutes. Refrigerate, lift out with foil and cut into squares.
This is one of those recipes that most American's have ingredients on hand , and it bakes fast so you can do it real quick in the summer. As always, you can click on the picture for closeups. Be aware that you will gain 5 pounds for just looking at them.

I'm glad you made those after I left; I'd have eaten the whole freaking pan. They look really good.
