There's just something about your grandmother's cooking and in Nick's case his grandmother's baking. Last Christmas I experienced it first hand. One word -- AMAZING! While we were in Mexico I asked Nick's mom if she could mail me grandma Jo's recipes because I have a few ideas for next year... Well they arrived at our house last week. Needless to say I was busy baking a few over the weekend. I hope you enjoy these as much as we do.
Grandma Jo's Mound Bars
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
2 cups flake coconut
1 teaspoon vanilla
6 oz. butterscotch chips
1 package milk chocolate chips
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
Mix graham cracker crumbs, butter and power sugar in a food processor. Mix well. Press the mixture into a greased 9x13-inch pan. Bake about 10 minutes
Whisk together sweetened condensed milk and vanilla. Pour the filling over graham cracker crust, sprinkle coconut and bake 10 to 12 minutes. When edges start to brown take out of oven.
While is cools melt butterscotch and milk chocolate chips. Once cool pour the melted chocolaty mixture on top of the coconut layer.
Cool completely in the refrigerator, about 2 hours. Cut into bars.
