Making "Hello Dolly" bars has also been a family tradition of ours. My mom got the recipe (in 1950's) from one of her sisters. Basically the same....graham cracker/butter crust baked for 10 minutes. Then layer in this order...over hot crust 1 cup semi sweet choc chips, 1 cup butterscotch chips, 1 cup coconut, 1 cup chopped walnuts TOPPED by drizzling an entire can of condensed milk then back in the oven approx 25 min. The "key" to this is to cover the pan with aluminum foil immediately after removing from oven, and let cool overnight with foil still on.

I toss the butter in the 9x13 pan while the oven is preheating to melt, evenly sprinkle the graham cracker crumbs over the melted butter, add the remaining ingredients and then evenly pour the can sweetened condensed milk over the entire pan.

Delicious! You can play around with the toppings to suit your tastes. I like dark chocolate, coconut, and almonds. Next time I make these, which will be soon since they're so easy, I'll include the white chocolate chips as well. Perfect for parties.
