It was all going well, until..
A pop-up thunderstorm, um, popped up.
So back into the house I came, and into the conventional oven went the cookie bars, to finish cooking.
After the change in cooking venue, I knew I'd better sample one or two pieces once it came out of the oven and was cut up, you know, just to make sure they came out. I'm devoted to my kids that way, don't you know.
They came out perfect.
Here's the recipe:
Chocolate/Graham Cracker/Coconut Cookie bars
9 graham crackers
Two Tbs. Butter
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup sweetened coconut
One standard-sized can of sweetened condensed milk
Grind up graham crackers in the food processor, then add the two Tbs. of butter, melted. Mix with a fork until graham crackers are moistened slightly.
Press mixture gently into a small 9 inch casserole dish -- do not tamp down.
Sprinkle onto cracker mixture the chocolate chips and the coconut. Pour condensed milk over the top, coating the entire surface.
Place in a 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes until slightly browned and bubbly.
Cool slightly then cut into squares. Do not let them get cold before cutting, or they will be very difficult to remove and the pan will be quite hard to clean.
