Sunday Sweets: Triple Layer Cookie Bars

This recipe for Triple Layer Cookie Bars is one filled with great childhood memories for me. These bars were a regular at our holiday get togethers and it's no wonder why. They are DE-LI-CIOUS. The hilarity to me is that my mother cut this recipe off of a Land O' Lakes butter box back in the day! We've always referred to them as "Magic Bars". And rightly so, they must be magic because how I fit into my jeans after binging on these bad boys is nothing short of a miracle. I don't think I've ever seen anyone eat just one....or even 2 for that matter. They are a real crowd pleaser but here's my disclaimer...HIDE them if you don't want to share...because you'll blink and they'll be gone...my aching heart knows this all too well.

You will need:

1/2 cup sweet cream butter
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 (7 oz) package of shredded coconut
1 (14oz) bottle of sweetened condensed milk
1 (12 oz) package of semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

Preheat oven to 350* (325*) for glass dishes. In a 13x9 baking dish, melt the butter in the oven. While the butter is melting, put graham crackers in ziplock bag and pound until crushed. After butter has completely melted, sprinkle the crumbs evenly over the butter. Top with shredded coconut and sweetened condensed milk. Bake for 25 minutes or until coconut looks lightly toasted. In small saucepan or double boiler, over low heat, melt chocolate chips with peanut butter. Spread evenly over top of hot coconut layer. Cool 30 min and then pop in the freezer or fridge to chill. Store loosely covered at room temp. ENJOY! xx Samantha
