Magic Cookie Bars

Continuing with the coconut theme; one of my favorite go-to desserts when I'm craving something chocolate is this delicious cookie bar. It has a graham cracker crust, walnuts, coconut, and chocolate chips. Yum! Yum! Yum! I've been eating this dessert ever since my mom made it for my family 20+ years ago. It's super easy to make and very scrumptious.

1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 2/3 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 1/2 cup coconut flakes
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup butter

First you set the oven to 350 degrees. Next, take a 13x9 baking dish and place the stick of butter in the pan, and stick it in the oven. As soon as the butter is finished melting take out the pan (careful it's hot) and sprinkle the graham cracker crumbs over the butter. Then, take the can of condense milk and pour evenly over the crumbs. Then, sprinkle with the chocolate chips, coconut flakes, and walnuts. Place in your oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the coconut flakes are a golden color. Enjoy.
