Gooey Bars

Here is another recipe that is great for the holidays and would make a great gift for the person who has everything but is a lover of sweets. These Gooey Bars are very rich and decadent and so very easy to make. With a combination of chocolate, cranberries, and coconut, it is sure to please everyone. The best part, they are gooey and yummy!

Gooey Bars

1 1/3 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 stick of butter, melted
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
1 bag (12 oz) chocolate chips
1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup shredded coconut

Combine the melted butter and graham cracker crumbs. Spray 13x9x2 inch baking dish with cooking spray. Pat down graham cracker crumbs into bottom of pan for the bottom crust. Pour sweetened condensed milk all over the crust covering all the crust. Add chocolate chips; then cranberries and nuts; finally top with coconut.
Bake in 350 oven (325 for glass dish) for 25 minutes or until golden brown on top. Cool completely, then cut and serve. Store in airtight container at room temperature.

- Arrange these in decorative tins for a great gift giving idea.
- Substitute raisins for the cranberries if desired.
- Substitute any type of nuts for pecans; the pecans are my nut of choice.
- Also great with crushed chocolate cookie crust instead of graham crackers.
