Would make this again.
My mom made this cookie bar every year for Christmas while I grew up. And I make this for my daughter every year, too. Now that she's living away in college, she emailed me asking me to make her some this year! I would double this recipe for 9x13 glass dish. This recipe with the measurements, I think, is good for 8x8 dish. 5 stars

I use Heath chips instead of coconut and it is so delicious! I'm going to try adding the condensed milk last next time.... 5 stars

So excited to have found these. We added dried cranberries to the recipe at the same time as the chips... turned out awesome. Gotta disagree, though, with the condensed milk being the last thing added. We tried that, and the graham cracker crumbs ended up not sticking together at all when cutting up the bars and taking them out of the pan. After letting them cool for about an hour and a half, we took out the bars and about half of the crumbs stayed in the pan. Makes more sense to add the condensed milk as the second step in order make sure the crumbs stick together and form a sort of crust for the bars. 5 stars

The taste of the bars was good, I took a fellow reviewers suggestion and poured the condensed milk on top of everything instead of on top of the graham cracker crust as instructed. I baked it for 30 minutes, let it cool for an hour and attempted to cut them and noticed LOTS of crust left on the foil along with the fact that the bottom was simply mushy. I might try to make them again but try a different recipe? 3 stars

My mother made these every Christmas except she didn't use butterscotch chips. The sweetened condensed milk was poured on lastas well. This makes for a much moister cookie. She called them Hello Dolly Cookies and are still a family favorite today! 5 stars

I really like this recipe. I made six dozen for a cookie swap my family has each year at Christmas. I did make some changes though. Instead of butterscotch I used white chocolate, 2 cups, less coconut, and only 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. The tweeks I did made it perfect! 4 stars

yes, I agree with Cookie baker, the condensed milk has to be the last thing added. have made these for years and always a BIG HIT! 5 stars
