Five Layer Bars
It's a long story but the long and the short of it is Kaitlin made these while I was at work and would not allow me to take pictures while she was cutting them up because she didn't think she was looking good. She made these to take to a friend's and they were a BIG, I mean BIG hit. Ok, I snagged one...ok two, but that stays on this blog.
She saw Paula Deen make these, she looked up the recipe, printed it and took care of business.
So get your kids, teenagers, grand kids or the neighbors kids in the kitchen and make some great memories!
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 cup butterscotch morsels
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup semisweet chocolate morsels
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Pour graham cracker crumbs into a large mixing bowl and add melted butter. Stir to thoroughly combine. Press into bottom of a 9 by 13-inch baking dish. Sprinkle the butterscotch morsels, then the chocolate morsels over the graham cracker crumbs. Drizzle the condensed milk over the morsels then sprinkle the coconut flakes on top. Bake for 30 minutes. Allow to cool and cut into bars.
Even if they forget to fold the clothes, feed the dog and completely pollute my laundry room with with sweaty, stinky soccer stuff and least they can feed themselves.
Bet you wish you had teenagers!
