The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap 2014: Tropical Magic Bars

The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap 2014

 
I've had the pleasure and honor of participating in The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap, hosted by Lindsay of Love & Olive Oil and Julie of The Little Kitchen, for three years in a row now. My family and I love receiving the unknown batches of cookies from fellow food bloggers but I enjoy even more baking up some creations of my own to share. This year I decided on making a cookie bar that my mom has always made each year for Christmas although I put a tropical twist on it...
 
Tropical Magic Cookie Bars
 
 
1/2 c. melted butter
1 1/2 c. graham cracker crumbs
1 c. chopped walnuts
1 (6 oz.) package dark chocolate chips
1 1/3 c. or (3 1/2 oz.) can flaked coconut
1/2 c. chopped dried mango
1/2 c. raisin medley
1 1/3 c. (15 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
 
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Into the bottom of a lined cookie sheet pout melted butter and evenly sprinkle on graham cracker crumbs. Then also evenly layer remaining ingredients, reserving the condensed milk for drizzling on last.
Bake for about 25 minutes or until golden.
Allow to cool before cutting into squares.
 
 
I would like to give a special thank you to the three lovely bakers for sending their tasty treats our way...
