This is a recipe that my Mum has made as long as I can remember. She is well known in the towns she's lived in in Canada for these squares. Every wedding reception that was ever held in her church included a pan of these squares and they are the first item everyone goes for when dessert is served. Rich and delectable! I served them at my wedding on March 1st of 2008.

  • Pour the butter into a 9x13 inch baking dish, then sprinkle the graham cracker crumbs on top, pressing down to form a crust. Sprinkle evenly with the chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, and shredded coconut. Drizzle the milk overtop, then sprinkle with the chopped walnuts.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the condensed milk has thickened and turned brown, and the walnuts have browned, 30 to 45 minutes. Cool to room temperature on a wire rack and cut into squares to serve.

LOVE these things! The only change I made was to leave out the nuts as I'm not a fan. They do stick so I used a non-stick pan sprayed with cooking spray came right out with no problem. Read More

So very easy and so very yummy. I sent them out for Mother's Day. My Mom and Sis loved them. I told them to heat them up in the microwave for a few seconds before eating since they were oh so gooey good when they came out. Read More

These are so good. My grandmother has this exact recipe and we have been making it for years. It is fun to experiment with the new flavored chips you find at the grocery store like peanut butter mint or cherry. Read More

I really enjoy this recipe because you can switch it up to suit your personal tastes. I omitted the walnuts because I'm allergic and I didn't have any coconut so I used a combination of peanut butter chips milk chocolate chips and white chocolate chips with the sweetened condensed milk. I ate almost the entire pan and my best friend requested the recipe. Needless to say these are versatile and terrific squares. Thanks! Read More

This is the same as my mother's recipe except we add the walnuts before the coconut. Then we drizzle the sweeten condensed milk over the coconut. I just wanted to check a recipe on ALLRECIPES for the cooking temp etc. It came out perfectly! My husband remembers his mother making theses when he was a kid. (He is 76 years old.) So I guess this recipe has been around awhile. Read More

This is a nice variation on the magic layer bars. I still prefer the original recipe but this is still very good but sweeter than we like. Read More
