Six Layer Bars (Hello Dollies)

Comment on this recipe

"This recipe comes from my mother and is a favorite at Christmas time. No matter how many times I make these, hers are still the best!"

Ingredients

1 stick (1/4 pound) margarine
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk

Instructions

In the microwave oven, melt margarine in an 8x8-inch microwave-safe pan. Add graham cracker crumbs and stir into the margarine. Then pat into the pan to make a crust.

Layer remaining ingredients in order given: coconut, chocolate chips and walnuts. Pour sweetened condensed milk over the top and bake at 325 degrees for 30 minutes or until the top begins to crust over. The milk will seep down through the ingredients. Cool thoroughly before cutting into squares.

This recipe can be doubled easily. Use a 9x13-inch pan if that is done and bake for approximately 45 minutes.
