Family Recipe Friday - Hello Dollies

In the sugary spirit of the holiday season, here's a simple recipe that came from my grandmother Easie.  I've seen many variations on this recipe, with many different names; I'm not sure why they would be called Hello Dollies.  Easy to make and delicious.  However, I'm pretty sure it's best not to consider the number of calories or amount of fat in them.  It's just once a year, so go crazy.

Hello Dollies
(Grandma Berry)

1 stick of butter (8 tablespoons)
1 ¼ cup of crushed graham crackers
1 ½ cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup chopped pecans
1 14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Melt butter in oven in a 9x13 pan.

When butter has melted, add crushed graham crackers and use a fork to mix and press to form a crust.  Sprinkle on chocolate chips, coconut and pecans.  Pour sweetened condensed milk over the top. 

Bake for approximately 25 minutes, or until the top is lightly browned and bubbling.  Makes 18 bars.  Cool completely before cutting into bars. (But if you can sneak out a little bit before they're completely cool, being warm makes them even better.)
