  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 cup shredded coconut

  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk


  1. Melt the butter and put it in the bottom of a 9-inch square pan
  2. Layer the graham crackers, coconut, chocolate chips, and walnuts in the order listed above
  3. Pour the sweetened condensed milk evenly over the top
  4. Bake at 350° F for 30 minutes
  5. Cut it into 1 inch squares when cooled

    My mother-in-law made this more than 40 years ago. Recipe was lost, she kept everything in her head and also had baking secrets. Besides that, I was busy raising 7 children.Recently remembered the cake/bars. I knew it would be on the inter-net. Thank you, Doug.

    Thanks Doug, for being so kind to post the recipe… Anne said she was going to look at the recipe I posted. I said, I’m senile, I didn’t post the recipe…

    Thanks again…
    Love you,
