Holiday Magic Bars

20121226-134040.jpg

What you need:
1-1/2 cups of graham cracker crumbs (about 8 planks)
1/2 cup (1 stick) of butter, melted
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk (NOT evaporated milk)
1 cup white chocolate chips
1-1/3 cups flaked coconut
1 cup chopped nuts (walnuts, pecans)
1 cup dried cherries
Thinned cherry or raspberry jam

What you do:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In small bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs and butter; mix well. Press crumb mixture firmly on bottom of 13×9-inch baking pan. Pour condensed milk evenly over crumb mixture. Layer evenly with remaining ingredients; press down firmly.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Run a knife around the edge of the pan while still warm to loosen. Cool on a wire rack. Chill if desired to speed up firming. Cut into bars or diamonds. Store covered at room temperature or in the refrigerator.

Great holiday idea! Use only white chocolate chips (NO semi-sweet ones), add in some dried cranberries, and drizzle the top with some thinned raspberry jam after baking.
