graham cracker crumbs
1 (14 ounce) can
sweetened condensed milk
4 (1.55 ounce) bars
milk chocolate candy
Sixty years ago we used to make these to take with us to camp. I made it acoording to the recipe the first time except substituted one cup of chopped pecans for one cup of the cocoanut and mixed in 6 Oz of Choc Chips (no chocolate on top)since that is the way I remembered them. Cooked them for 20 minutes because one review said they were soft in the middle. Loved them but they were a bit greasy. I don't remember using margarine or butter and so the second time I omitted the margarine/butter. It was a bit dry and so I added about a Tablespoon of milk to the dough. Used moistened hands to spread the dough in the pan which also added a bit more moisture. I set the timer for 20 minutes and didn't hear it when it went off (was on the computer of course) and they cooked for 30 minutes. They were every bit as good as the first batch. I feel like a kid again. Thanks Diane!
I did't like the taste , nothing was wrong with the texture or being too sweet , but it was just my personal taste may be someone else will like it , I don't think I'm going to make it again.
These bars are absolutely delicious...I can't stop eating them!! I didn't have any chocolate bars on hand for the topping so I substituted half a bag of chocolate chips and melted them in the microwave with a dollop of peanut butter. This keeps the chocolate nice and soft and adds extra flavor!! Great recipe!
these are so, so easy and SO incredibly yummy! i didn't have any problems with mushiness (but then again i used up all of the graham crackers i had left, about 2 1/4 cups and baked it for almost 15 minutes)...instead of melting chocolate and spreading over the top i just poured 1/2 a bag of chocolate chips over the top when it was done and put it back in the over for a couple of minutes. hubby (the coconut king) asked for toasted coconut sprinkled over the top which was even better and added texture. will make again and again, thanks!!!!!!!
I did modify this a bit. Used melted virgin coconut oil(a little less) instead of butter and sprayed pan with coconut oil cooking spray. Mixed package of grahams, vco, organic sweetened condensed milk all in food processor. Baked for 10 mins. poured 11.5 oz bag of pure belgian milk chocolate chips on top. Turned off oven and returned to oven for melting. Smoothed chips out with spatula. Cut with cooking sprayed scraper/chopper after cooling.
i've been making these bars for a while but i know them as 5-star bars from the eagle brand cookbook...the chocolate they ask for in the book is aero bars (4) and i have found that they do work best....great and very very easy
I made these for a bake sale at work. I had so many people ask me about these bars the next day. They are absolutely wonderful!!!
I used semi-sweet chocolate chips instead on candy bars. Next time, I think I will try caramel and chocolate drizzled on the top. The combination is just perfect--thanks for this great recipe!
M-m-m-m- so easy and so good. I used only a Tablespoon of butter, 2 C grahams, 1 C oatmeal and 1 C coconut. I baked for about 15 min. as they were getting brown around the edges. Topping was semi sweet chips of which I put on top and back in the oven till soft enough to spread. Will be making again!
