Recipe from Cooking Light- Annual Recipes, 2008. Really, really good, you have to make these to understand what i mean!.
Line your pan with parchment paper, so it will be easy to take them out of the pan and cut into bars.

Y: 24 serving bars

1 1/2 C graham cracker crumbs (about 9 cookie sheets)
2 T butter melted
1 T water
1/3 C semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/3 C butterscotch morsels
2/3 C flake sweetened coconut
1/4 C chopped pecans, toasted - i used almonds
1 (15 oz. ) condensed milk

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. Line bottom and sides of a 9 x 13 baking pan with parchment paper, cut off excess paper around top edge.

3. Place crumbs in a medium bowl. Drizzle with butter and 1 T water, toss with a fork until moist.

4.Gently pat mixture into an even layer in pan (do not press firmly).

5. Sprinkle chips and morsels over crumb mixture.

6. Top evenly with coconut and nuts.

7. Drizzle milk evenly over top.

8. Bake at 350 degrees fro 25 min. or until lightly browned and bubbly around edges.

9. Cool completely on wire rack.

I love the combination of the coconuts, chocolate chips, butterscotch morsels and the nuts.



  1. From Cooking LIGHT?!!! These would only be "light" if you cut them into tiny pieces--lol! Actually, this recipe does use less chocolate & butterscotch, coconut & nuts than the recipe I tried so maybe it wouldn't be as sickeningly sweet. Your pictures are making me drool!

  2. Hi, V! I got this recipe from my sister's Cooking Light cookbook, i must admit i laughed coz it's sort of an oxymoron. Yeah right..light w/ all the sweets in the recipe? But i myself was surprised it wasn't so, so sweet as i expected although i cut it 1 inch by 1/2 inch bars, i guess that helped control the sweetness.

    These were good infact i just made another batch today=;) I was thinking of using dulce de leche next time. So, give this another try and use this recipe, see if they are still sweet for you.

  3. omg, yummy, so yummy. am drooooling. will try this one. great job

  4. !! I've always wondered what these were called! Wonderful! I love these things!
