Mounds Bars

This is such a dangerous recipe.  I made John take what was left of our pan of bars to work with him so I wouldn't sit at home all day eating them while Inga judged me.

"Really?  You're going to have another?"

The recipe is one of many in a box of my Granny and Grandpa's recipes.  I'm excited to share them with you as I work my way through :)

You will need:
  • 2 cups crushed graham crackers
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 cups coconut flakes
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 12 ounce bag of chocolate chips
To make your graham cracker crumbs, you can use a food processor or mash them up in a zip lock bag.  2 cups ends up being just a few crackers short of two full sleeves. 

Mix the graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and sugar together. 

Press into the bottom of a casserole dish.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

Mix the coconut flakes and sweetened condensed milk.  Layer on top of the graham cracker crust and bake for another 15 minutes at 350 degrees.

Finally, melt the chocolate chips (I did this in the microwave, but you could use a double boiler too) and spread on top.

Cut, serve, and enjoy!  These can be eaten warm and gooey, or they gradually firm as they cool.  Either way, they're delicious!
