I was digging through my cook book last weekend to try to plan a few meals. I adore thumbing through it and reading (and re-reading) the recipes from my granny, mom, grandmother, etc.
I wanted to mark another one from the list that I had “cooked”, so when I spotted Chewy Bars I knew it would be easy. It was so easy that I forgot to take pictures til step 3 or so! I love my granny’s handwriting and her circle-y dots on her “i’s”. Plus I always want to type “Grannie” because that’s how she always signed cards to me!
Melt 1/2 Cup Butter and pour into 9 x 13 pan*
Sprinkle in order:
1 Cup crushed graham crackers
1 Cup Coconut
1 Cup butterscotch chips*
1 Cup chocolate chips
1 Cup chopped nuts
1 Cup Eagle Brand condensed milk*
Bake for 30 minutes at 350
Cut while warm, Cool and serve.*
*I used a glass pan and melted the butter right in it in the microwave. One less thing to have to wash!
*next time I make it I am using peanut butter chips!
*I used the whole can of condensed milk because I didn’t pay attention to the directions! I don’t know if that’s more than a cup? Well, except for the extra that I ate with a spoon!
*Your eyes and your nose are going to tell you to cut these like brownies. Don’t. Cut them in 1-2 inch squares. They are SO rich that you will die trying to eat a brownie size one. Plus you can always go back for more.
definitely an easy dessert. And one that won’t be sitting around long at home or at work. I took some to work the next day and they were gone within an hour!
