Hello Dolly!

Apr 19, 2015

Hello_Dollies_bI don’t know if you call these Hello Dollies or 7-layer cookie bars or coconut chocolate nut bars, but whatever you want to call them, they are a mighty delicious, decadent dessert.

It took all of 5 minutes to throw together and after 28 minutes of baking, they were ready to go.

1½ sticks butter, melted

2 sleeves of graham crackers, crushed- approx 3 cups
7 oz bag of coconut flakes, sweetened (I would have used unsweetened but they didn’t have any at the store)
1- 10 oz bag of dark chocolate chips
¾ cup pecans, chopped small
¾ cup walnuts, chopped small
½ tsp salt
¹⁄₈ tsp cinnamon
1 -14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
Canola oil spray

Casserole dish




Preheat oven to 350ºF. Spray your casserole dish with canola oil.

Take your crushed Graham crackers and pour into the tray. Add salt and ground cinnamon and mix with a spoon. Pour melted butter over the crushed crackers and mix well. Once butter is mixed into the Graham crackers, press all of it down to create your bottom layer or crust.

Then take your chocolate chips and pour right on top of the Graham cracker crust. Spread out evenly.

In the bowl, add coconut flakes and both nuts. Mix well, then spread evenly over the chocolate chips.

Use your spoon to drizzle and spread the condensed milk over the entire baking dish. Place in the oven and bake for 28-32 minutes or once the edges become golden and the coconut flakes brown slightly.

Allow to cool for 10-15 minutes before slicing. For clean slices, cool completely and refrigerate for 30 minutes before slicing.

Enjoy! Xo




Hot out of the oven! So good!
