  • Mix graham cracker crumbs and butter together in a bowl; press into the prepared pan.

  • Pour 2/3 the sweetened condensed over the graham cracker crust. Sprinkle chocolate chips, marshmallows, coconut, pecans, and cranberries over the sweetened condensed milk layer; press into the pan. Drizzle the remaining 1/3 sweetened condensed milk evenly over the toppings.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until topping is golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool in the pan for at least 20 minutes before cutting into squares.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

Love these bars! Just made them again for our quilting group of ladies. Forget the parchment paper I just used Pam and it worked fine. Love the taste the craisins add:) Read More

These bars are amazing! I did make a few small changes. I used 2 cups of graham cracker crumbs instead of 1 1/2 cups. I used about 3/4 cup of chocolate chips and might even use less next time. I m really glad I used unsweetened coconut because I do think they would have been way too sweet if I used sweetened. I also doubled the pecans. I will definitely make them again! In fact I need to have a few left over for cookie plates for neighbors and so I will probably be making more tomorrow Update: I made it again the very next night and they didn t turn out quite as good but they were still delicious! I think I used too much of the condensed milk on the bottom layer so the crust was too wet. Also probably didn t bake quite long enough. I do think they are better with a tablespoon or so less of the condensed milk ( the first time I made them I had some leftover because I was afraid of getting them too gooey). These issues would probably answer the complaint from other reviewers of them being too gooey. Read More
