Five Layer Bars


I'm trying to get caught up on my dessert groove and what a better way to start of a Monday than this.  I know you're looking at it and saying, "What the hell?".  I was only able to get off this one shot.

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!

My girls don't like coconut, but I bet they would eat these!

All you have to do is read the list of ingredients and know that this is going to be good.

Awesome, I love coconut. Too bad my girlfriend doesn't... or maybe for the best since I'm trying to lose weight! Heh.

Joanne said...

Five layer bars are the best! And if it's a Paula Deen recipe you know it must be amazing.

I love these. Every Christmas I go nuts over them.

Mary said...

That sounds great! Do you think there's something that could be substituted for the coconut? Unfortunately my husband is allergic to coconut, so we don't have it around the house!

Cheryl said...

I will take them off your hands if they make me these! YUM, you are teaching them well Mama!

Marguerite said...

Now you've got me craving these! They look fab and bet they're sinfully good!

Mary said...

What fabulous cookies! They can indeed feed themselves. Re your final comment - no thanks, I've had enough and done my part for mankind. Have a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary

I'll kiss a frog if I can have one of these bars.

Marjie said...

Oh, I have teenagers, and they're helpless, except for cookies and such. Poor Kaitlin, at the "Oh, I look awful!" age without realizing that 10 years from now she'll wonder why she ever thought she wasn't just gorgeous at 15 or 16!
