Eight Layer Bars

Good morning friends! I'm sharing. One of my readers was kind enough to send me her recipe for this tasty dessert. I've heard she's a terrific cook. Thanks Diva Donna!

Ingredients
1 stick butter
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
2 cup white chocolate chips
8 oz. dried cherries
2 cups chopped walnuts
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 cups shredded coconut

Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
Place butter in 13 x 9 inch pan and melt in oven. Swirl to coat bottom and sides with butter.
Spread crumbs evenly over bottom of pan. Layer chocolate chips, white chips, and cherries and nuts over crumbs. Add coconut, and pour condensed milk. Press down firmly.
Bake until edges are golden brown, about 35-40 minutes. Let cool. Cut into squares

Sounds yummy!

My mom makes these except we don't use the cherries! I love them!!! Perfect for the sweet tooth but hell on the hips! LOL

If you eat too many of them they're probably not good for the teeth, either! LOL I think I'd chance it. They look yummy!

Try using the new caramel flavored sweetened condensed milk as an alternative... it also rocks.

P.S. Substitute baking cranberries (they're semi-dried) in place of the cherries for a slightly less sweet version, Amy)
