One of my favorite recipes for a delicious treat ..Hello Dolly Bars ..Bake now ...Freeze for the Holidays.
FREEZE FOR THE HOLIDAYS !!
They are so easy to make and they look like a Million Dollars and taste even better.
Make them to your own taste ...if you don't like nuts leave them out ...change the chocolate chip flavors ...it's a very versatile recipe ..
This is how I like to make them.
1 1/2 cups of crushed graham crackers (about 8 crackers)
2 cups of chocolate chips (use only 1 1/2 cups if using Butterscotch chips as well)
1 cup butterscotch morsels/chips
1 1/2 cups of shredded coconut
1 1/2 cups of chopped pecans or a nut of your choice
1 14oz can of sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup of butter
Preheat the oven to 350f degree or 180c degrees
Melt the butter in a saucepan
Pour melted butter into an 11" x 7" or 8" x 8" cake pan ..I used the later
Sprinkle graham cracker crumbs in to pan and mix well with melted butter to form a crust
Press it down
Layer on top of the graham cracker crust the Chocolate Chips ..then the Coconut and finally the pecan nuts
Evenly pour sweetened condensed milk over everything
Bake in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes
The top should be slightly brown
Let cool in pan for at least half an hour, cut into bars and serve
Or once cool open freeze in the freezer, once frozen ..either wrap individually
When thawing remove the wrapping whilst the bar is totally frozen
Or you can just place the in a lock 'n' lock container or airtight container
If you have to layer them put parchment paper in-between layers.
If you like dessert treats you will love these
And they look so good ...your guests will be asking for the recipe
I sometimes like to print out the recipes and put them at the end of the table for my guests to take home and try for themselves.
I bought more Christmas decorations yesterday
I will photograph them and post about them another day
The shops were filled ..it was quite crazy ..long lines at the registers
Just like Christmas eve .
All getting their Veteran's day discounts

Have a wonderful weekend whatever you are doing
Enjoy your baking
