Recipe Notes

  • Store cookies in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
  • Try your favorite nuts in this recipe. We like walnuts and pecans. 

Here's how you make it:

  1. Line a 13x9-inch baking pan with aluminum foil. Spray the sides of the foil to prevent bars from sticking to the sides of the foil when you remove bars. Cut the butter into the pan. Set the pan in the heated oven to melt butter.
  2. Remove the pan from the oven when butter is melted. Sprinkle graham cracker crumbs evenly over the melted margarine. The crumbs will be absorbed by the butter to create the crust. Gently shake the pan back and forth sideways to allow excess crumbs to be absorbed.
  3. Layer chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, and chopped nuts evenly over the crust. Pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over bars. Use an angled spatula to spread milk into spots that are not covered. Sprinkle the coconut on top.
  4. Bake bars 25 to 30 minutes in a preheated 350-degree F oven until lightly browned. Remove the pan from the oven and allow it to cool completely on a wire rack. Lift the foil out of the pan and set the bars onto a cutting board. Peel away foil. Cut the bars. Store bars loosely covered at room temperature.
