Making "Hello Dolly" bars has also been a family tradition of ours. My mom got the recipe (in 1950's) from one of her sisters. Basically the same....graham cracker/butter crust baked for 10 minutes. Then layer in this order...over hot crust 1 cup semi sweet choc chips 1 cup butterscotch chips 1 cup coconut 1 cup chopped walnuts TOPPED by drizzling an entire can of condensed milk then back in the oven approx 25 min. The "key" to this is to cover the pan with aluminum foil immediately after removing from oven and let cool overnight with foil still on. Read More

Delicious! You can play around with the toppings to suit your tastes. I like dark chocolate coconut and almonds. Next time I make these which will be soon since they're so easy I'll include the white chocolate chips as well. Perfect for parties. Read More

These are quick easy sweet and tasty - which is exactly what I was looking for when my son told me at 7 p.m. that he needed to bring a food item for his Spanish class the next day! I had all of the ingredients for this on-hand and threw these together in no time at all. My Mom used to make these except the condensed milk was just drizzled on top (not on the bottom crust). I actually really liked this method better as the bottom crust gets kind of chewy and toffee-like rather than crumbly like my Mom's did. Read More

Oh my word! So addictive! I used butterscotch chips instead of white chocolate. Will definitely make again. I'll try white chocolate chips next time. Read More
