This is an indulgent recipe. There's not much you can do to make it more diet friendly, but it is delicious and if you keep your portions in control, a nice addition to any holiday celebration.
Fashioned off the ever famous Seven Layer Magic Bars, the only real difference is substituting white chocolate chips for butterscotch chips, which does give the bar an entirely different flavor. I followed this recipe HERE on Allrecipes.com for this cookie with a few changes:
- I used milk chocolate chips instead of semisweet.
- I used chopped pecans instead of walnuts.
- I sprinkled the chips, nuts, and coconut over the graham crumb layer and then drizzled the entire can of sweetened condensed milk evenly over the top, rather than splitting the pour in half as the recipe suggests. (I used full fat condensed milk. I don't know why fat free wouldn't work as well, maybe saving a few calories for you)
- I lined my pan with some parchment paper that overhung the long edges of the baking dish, so I could lift the entire dish out and cut them evenly.
I can't believe Thanksgiving is just a little over a week away already!
I cleaned out my refrigerator yesterday. Wayyyyy overdue! I don't know why, but I tend to collect millions of condiments and sauces and jams! What is up with that? I made it look nice and freed up a bunch of space for next week. I always feel so accomplished when I get a task like that completed!
How about you? Are you a hoarder of condiments, etc, like me? Is your refrigerator in need of a good cleaning?
