Hello, Dolly

Today's tutorial is a simple, yet tasty treat: Hello Dollies (also known as seven layer bars). I love the versatility of the ingredients and of course, the taste. What you'll need as the basis for these bars is sugar, graham crackers, and sweetened condensed milk. Here's what to do:

To make the crust:
Place a package of graham crackers (not a box, but one of the packages within the box) into a ziplock bag and break into small pieces. For this, I find a rolling pin works best. Once crumbled, pour into a bowl and add a stick of butter (1/2 cup) and 1/4 cup sugar. Mix using a fork, cutting into the ingredients (you want the mixture to form into pea-size clumps). Next, press the mixture into the bottom of an un-greased 9x13" pan.
For the filling:
Select any toppings and sprinkle over the crust. Classic Hello Dollies consist of coconut, pecans, and chocolate chips. Other fun ideas are to add butterscotch chips, peanut butter chips, dried berries, m&ms, candy corn or Oreos! It's easy to add your own creativity to these bars, changing the overall flavor. After adding your toppings, pour a 14oz can of sweetened condensed milk over the whole pan and bake at 325° for about 25 minutes.
That's it! Honestly, the hardest part about these cookies is waiting to let them cool before eating.
 Enjoy ♥
