6 Layer Bars

6 Layer Bars

The combination of chocolate, coconut, and walnuts make these 6 Layer Bars extremely addicting!

I used to make 7 Layer Bars every year during the holidays until my friend, Napua, suggested that I substitute the butterscotch chips for double chocolate chips.  They were so good that 6 Layer Bars have now become a staple recipe for my holiday baking and a favorite among my closest friends.  They’re great for any potluck, holiday party, or cookie exchange and they are ridiculously easy to make.

In a 9 x 13″ pan, add in order:

1 stick butter or margarine, melted

1 cup crushed graham crackers

1 cup sweetened coconut

12 ozs. chocolate chips

1 can sweetened condensed milk

1 cup chopped walnuts.

Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 30 minutes or until it is bubbly in the middle.  Let cool completely.  Cover and chill them in the fridge until set (it’s okay to leave them in the fridge overnight).

Take them out of the fridge and let them warm to room temperature.  Cut into bars.  You can serve them right away, or let them get room temperature.  You can also store them in an airtight container, separated by layers of wax paper, for up to three days.
