1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 cup butterscotch-flavored chips

1 1/3 cups flaked coconut

1 cup chopped nuts

2 tablespoons red and green sprinkles 


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F for a metal pan (325 degrees F for glass baking pan). In a small bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs and butter; mix well. Press crumb mixture firmly on bottom of 13×9-inch baking pan.
  2. Pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over crumb mixture. Layer evenly with remaining ingredients; press down firmly with fork.
  3. Bake 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool. Chill if desired. Cut into bars or diamonds. Store covered at room temperature.

Original recipe yields 2 to 3 dozen bars


-To turn the graham crackers into crumbs, put them in a zip lock, then use a rolling pin to crush them (the more crushed the better).

-Don’t forget to grease the pan before adding the ingredients so the cookies don’t stick to it.

-Also, one can add mini marshmallows or swap the butterscotch flavored chips with peanut butter flavor chips if desired.
