There's a man in the kitchen!

On the fifth day of Christmas I gave the Beef:
Awesome Metallica magnets. 

So on the 6th day of Christmas he gave me....

When I saw this I was really confused, it's just a recipe on an index card. For a moment I thought his present to me was that I had to make him treats. Treasured childhood recipe or not I don't think I would have been ok with that. 

It actually turned out to be a wonderful evening where he did dishes and then baked the recipe himself and let me take pictures so I could blog about it! 

So here we go, The Beef's Mom's Magic Cookie Bar Recipe!

1/2 cup Butter
1 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
1 16oz bag chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts
1/1/3 cup shredded coconut 
9x13 baking dish

Preheat oven to 350.

Melt butter in baking dish.

Spread Graham cracker crumbs evenly over butter.
And if you're like the beef and also have a crooked counter prop hot plates under the baking dish so it's completely level to the point of OCD. 

Pour condensed milk over graham crumbs.

Spread chocolate chips evenly over milk.

Spread walnuts evenly over chips.

Spread coconut evenly over walnuts.
"it's like cheese!"

Bake for 30 minutes.

Let cool and enjoy!


  1. Duuuuuuuuuude, those are almost identical to my mom's infamous seven layer bars. And they are friggin magical.

    1. I found these to be a bit too sweet for my liking but I honestly feel like I've been saying that about every single treat I've had lately. My tastebuds are broken. :(
