"This one is akin to the seven layer bars, without the butterscotch chips, and an extra layer of sweetened condensed milk." — Sudie

graham cracker crumbs
3 (14 ounce) cans
sweetened condensed milk
semisweet chocolate chips
3 2/3 cups
2 1/2 cups
I've been making these for years...They are much better when you layer as follows: melted butter, sprinkle crushed crackers next, chocolate chips, walnuts, coconut & save the sweetened milk for Last. No need to press them down either. Cook for 28 minutes & you have the best cookie ever!
The came out terrible. Even the guys at work did not eat them. There was no balance between the ingredients - too much crust, not enough chocolate. Parts were so hard they ended up going out to the birds. I was very careful in following the recipe, since this was the first time I had made them. I am no t a novice cook, and yes I do know the difference between evaporated and sweetened-condensed milk.
A family favorite at my house. If you use a glass pan, you need to reduce the temperature by 25 degrees or the outside edge gets very hard.
I usually make half as many of these using a 9X13 pan, and I always toss in a cup of butterscotch chips as well. These are always a favorite!
Excellent, easy treat. I line my pan with parchment paper......bars come out very, very easy....(chill first) Also, I put 1/2 choc chips and 1/2 butterscotch chips on top of the crust, then the nuts, then the coconut......then, I pour the sweetened condensed milk over the top of this..... Works much, much, better.
Looks like the last reviewer used EVAPORATED milk instead of Condensed. Make sure you use condensed or you will have a soupy mess on your hands!!
These needed to harden in the fridge for 24 hours, but they were great, we brought them to my parents for thanksgiving and they were devoured!
My family has enjoyed these for years and years. However, we take out the nuts and coconut flakes. And we sprinkle the chocolate chips on top without pressing them into the condensed milk. One pan is usually gone in a night and there are only 4 of us!
