sweet layer bar – copy cat

Today I had lunch with my mom and baby Lou at one of my favorite spots. I had an interesting and very delicious Dill Pickle soup. Before heading out, I got a dessert bar they called a Holly Bar. It was fresh out of the oven, looked awesome and tasted great. However, at $4.25 for a square, I thought I should be making this myself! I must say, that my bar was even better. Are you craving chocolate with a crunch and toffee flavor? Try this!

I should warn that I whipped this up free hand – no measuring, however below I will provide guestamates as a guideline

As always, improvise with what you have on hand

You need:

  • 1 bag of graham crackers – whizzed in food processor (or pre-packaged crumbs)
  • 1/2 cup butter (melted)
  • 1.5 cups unsweetened coconut (or enough to cover your pan)
  • 1.5 cups semi-sweet choc chips (I used mini chips)
  • 1 cup toffee pieces
  • 1/2 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup pecan pieces
  • cinamon

Line a baking pan (mine is 9 x 11) with parchment paper and heat oven to 350.

Combine graham crumbs and butter and press into bottom of pan
Sprinkle coconut evenly over base
Sprinkle mini chips and toffee pieces over coconut
Poor/drizzle condensed milk over the goodies until almost everything is thinly coated
Sprinkle milk choc chips and pecan pieces overtop
Bake at 350 for 20-25 mins
Cool, cut and consume
