Well ... Hello Dollies!

I have made about 18,000 batches of "Hello Dollies" this holiday season. Many thanks to my dear colleague (and you know who you are!) ... friends and family continue to depend on me for providing this "I can't stop eating it," gooey, chocolatey, coconut-y absolument delicious holiday treat.

I share, herein, a sacred recipe from my inner cookbook files.  

Now you're cooking!

~ Hello Dollies ~

These are also known as 6 Layer Bars - because the 6 ingredients in the recipe are layered one by one in the pan. You can't get much easier than that and they are so good that folks will be begging you to stop baking them. 


1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cups graham wafer crumbs
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups flaked coconut
1 can sweetened condensed milk (Eagle Brand, 300ml)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Melt butter in a 9 x 13 inch cake pan. Remove from oven, and spread the melted butter evenly over the bottom of the pan.
- Sprinkle the graham wafer crumbs evenly over the melted butter.
Sprinkle walnuts over the graham wafer crumbs, then chocolate chips, then coconut.
Pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over top of the coconut.
Return to oven and bake for about 25 minutes, until lightly browned on top. 
Cut into small squares when cooled.
