Day 12: Magic Cookie Bars

We met Phil today. He's been living here for 17 years and knows a lot of the neighbors. He was real friendly and excited while we were talking to him. Maybe because we gave him cookies. Hopefully we'll get to see him at the health talk Matt's doing in a couple of weeks. There's also going to be a couple changes taking place after the health talk. I'll let you know more about that later on though once we've figured it all out. So today we (I) made Magic Cookie Bars. I'm also going to make tomorrow's cookies tonight when i'm done with this since I think we'll have a lot of them and Matt can take them to the club tomorrow. But you'll just have to come back tomorrow to see what those are.
* I increased the crust to 2 1/2 c. of graham crackers and added a couple extra T of butter because what the recipe calls for is not much at all.. I made it and it didn't look like it would even be enough to cover the bottom of the pan.
You can also use whatever kind of nuts and chips you want. I had a can of peanuts and a can of mixed nuts so I used the rest of those and sub. milk chocolate chips for the semi-sweet and added a few white. So you can put in what you like.

Magic Cookie Bars

1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 (14 ounce) can Sweetened Condensed Milk
2 cups semisweet chocolate morsels
1 1/3 cups flaked coconut

1 cup chopped nuts

Heat oven to 350 degrees F (325 degrees for glass dish). Coat 13x9-inch baking pan with no-stick cooking spray.
Combine graham cracker crumbs and butter. Press into bottom of prepared pan. Pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over crumb mixture. Layer evenly with chocolate chips, coconut and nuts. Press down firmly with a fork.
Bake 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool. Cut into bars or diamonds. Store covered at room temperature.
