German Chocolate Bars

I just love reading December magazines.  All the decorating, crafts, and recipes are such fun to explore.  This recipe was inspired by a recipe I found in the December issue of Family Circle Magazine.  The grocery stores here didn't have the cookies that the original recipe required, but I found a great alternative.  Enjoy. (I am)

German Chocolate Bars


German Chocolate Bars
 
1  14.4 oz box chocolate graham crackers
3/4 unsalted butter, melted
1  14oz can sweetened condensed milk
1  12 oz bag semisweet chocolate chips
1 1/4 cups sweetened flaked coconut
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
 
Heat oven to 350 degrees and line  a 9 x 13 pan with foil.  Spray the foil with non stick spray.
 
Crush graham cracker in a food processor until fine crumbs. 
 
Mix melted butter with cracker crumbs and press into prepared pan.  Press until firm.  I used the bottom of a measuring cup to really press the crumbs in the pan.
 
Pour sweetened condensed milk over crust.  Spread evenly.
 
Cover milk with chocolate chips.  Next cover with coconut and then cover with nuts.
 
Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.  Cool then refrigerate for 2 hours.
 
Remove from the pan by lifting the foil.  Cut into bars.
 
 
 
Rich and delicious.


I have been sewing, but I can't share yet.  I'm not sure if my kids read my blog or not.  Sometimes I think they do and I can't risk them seeing.  winking...

If you've been waiting for the stadium cushion tutorial, it is coming soon.  I have a very special one made for a friend.

Here's to a very big, busy week. (everyone needs their hair cut and colored for Christmas)

Now to set up a tree.....

Yum! I grew up eating these- only my Mom called them 7 Layer bars. I think she also added butterscotch chips. Delish!
