Elise's Triple Layer Bars
½ C butter
1 ½ C graham cracker crumbs
1 (7oz) package of flaked coconut (2 2/3 C)
1 (14oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (12oz) package semi-sweet chocolate chips
½ C creamy peanut butter
Preheat oven to 350 (325 for glass dish). In 9x13 pan, melt butter in oven. Sprinkle crumbs evenly over butter. Top evenly with coconut then sweetened condensed milk. Bake 25 minutes or until lightly browned. In small saucepan, over low heat, melt chips with peanut butter (much easier in microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until completely smooth). Spread evenly over hot coconut layer. Cool 30 minutes. Chill thoroughly. Cut into bars. Store loosely covered at room temperature.
**Elise served these at a dinner years ago and I was enamored! I called her a few days later to get the recipe and she was embarrassed to tell me she got it from the back of the Eagle brand milk can.....it doesn't matter, they are delicious!
**I sprinkled a touch of kosher salt on the top...just for fun.
