Hello Dolly Bars

Once again, it's been forever since I last shared a new recipe.  I have tons of photos sitting on my computer waiting to be uploaded & shared.  One of these days I'll get to them all.

For our tailgate, I'm officially the "dessert girl" - obviously meaning that I'm responsible for bringing some type of sweet treat to share with everyone each week.  A few weeks ago, after a crazy week at work, I needed something fast & simple to whip up.  I turned to my new addiction - Pinterest.  I found several different recipes for Hello Dolly Bars (also known as 7 layer bars).  Most of the recipes were the same - more or less.  So, I took the necessary ingredients and went to work.  The result was oh-so-tasty!!  

Next time you need a delicious, but quick dessert, give these a try.


*  2 cups graham cracker crumbs
*  1 stick butter
*  1 cup chopped pecans
*  1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
*  1 cup butterscotch chips
*  1 cup sweetened, shredded coconut
*  2/3 can sweetened condensed milk


1.  Place graham cracker crumbs in a zip-top baggie.  Melt butter and pour over crumbs.

 Close the bag and shake/massage the bag to combine the butter & graham cracker crumbs.

2.  Press the crumb mixture into the bottom on a 11x7 baking dish.

3.  Next, sprinkle the pecans, chocolate & butterscotch chips over the crust.

4.  Spread coconut evenly over the top.

5.  Last, drizzle 2/3 of a can of sweetened condensed milk over the entire thing.

6.  Place in a 350 degree oven and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until golden brown.

 7.  Cool and cut into small squares (these babies are RICH).
