Magical Cookie Monsters

Nothing really magical about these delectable bites but they are sinfully good, and so easy that you can study nuclear physics with one hand and mix these up with the other.

Seriously. Quick.

The recipe is supposedly on the back of Eagle Brand sweet condensed milk, but I couldn’t swear to that. It’s a very common bar, so I suspect that is so.

I didn’t measure like you are supposed to, and I think that is fine. That speeds up the process actually. So follow along and I’ll give you the size of the ingredient.

Ready?

Get set.

Go!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 sleeve of graham crackers (about 1 1/2 c, crushed)
  • 1 stick of butter, melted
  • enough nuts (pecans, walnuts, almonds, etc) to cover the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking pan.
  • one regular size 12oz of so, bag of chocolate chips (milk, semi-sweet, etc) again, enough to cover the bottom generously
  • 1 regular size bag of sweet flaked coconut (enough to cover the bottom–getting this now?)
  • 1 regular can of sweetened condensed milk

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Grease the bottom and sides of your pan with shortening.
  2. Melt and then pour the butter over the bottom, covering it all.
  3. Pour the graham crackers over and press lightly.
  4. In no particular order, layer the nuts, chips and coconut.
  5. Pour the can of condensed milk over the entire thing.
  6. Bake at 350° for 25-30 or until top is getting lightly browned.
  7. Cool for a few minutes before you attempt to cut and remove.

Serves: oh a trick question right? 10 if you are a skinny type. 4 if you are a pig.

NOTE: some folks add marshmallows instead of coconut, or dried fruit.
