Chocolate Coconut Squares

I shared this recipe on North Shore Days last week. If you've never been to North Shore Days, you should go check it out. Nat has lots of great tutorials and makes some of the most awesome jewelry I've seen!

Lately I've been invited to a lot of functions and have brought these cookies with me to several of them. They're a variation on a recipe my mom used to make. They're easy to make,  full of chewy, chocolatey goodness, and are always a hit.

½ cup butter
1 ½ cups graham cracker crumbs
2 cups chocolate chips (divided in half)
½ cup walnuts
½ cup Skor bits
1 ½ cups coconut (divided in half)
1 tin sweetened condensed milk

Preheat oven to 325.

Spray a 9x13 cooking dish with no-stick baking spray.

Melt ½ cup butter. Stir in 1 ½ cups graham cracker crumbs. Once mixed, pressed into the bottom of the cooking dish.

Sprinkle 1 cup chocolate chips, ½ cup walnuts, ½ cup Skor bits, and 2/3 cup coconut.

Cover evenly with sweetened condensed milk.

Sprinkle with 1 cup chocolate chips and 2/3 cup coconut. Use a fork to gently push the layers together.

Bake for approximately 30 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool before cutting.

The ingredients I sprinkled below and above the sweetened condensed milk were ones I found in my pantry. You could change it up based on what you have and like.  As you can tell I really like chocolate and coconut although, in my opinion, anything with sweetened condensed milk tastes great!
