I'm shaking it up and sharing a recipe today.  It's kind of a holiday so the calories don't count right? So I'm sharing another treat this week and here it is:

Don't they look yummy?
 
 
 

Here's how they're made:

First, gather your ingredients. Then melt some butter in a 9x13 and add graham cracker crumbs. Pour sweetened condensed milk over the top.

 
 

Next add a layer of chocolate chips, valentine's m&m's, chopped nuts of your choice (I used pecans), and flaked coconut.

 
 

Top with another layer of chocolate chips and valentine's candies and bake.

 
VALENTINE BARS:

1/2 c. butter

1&1/2 c. graham cracker crumbs

14 oz can sweetened condensed milk

1 c. chocolate chips divided into 1/2 c. portions

1 c. m&m's (valentine colors) divided into 1/2 c. portions

1/2 c. to 1 c. chopped nuts of your choice

1 to 1&1/2 c. flaked coconut


 
 
 
 

Directions:  Place butter in 9x13 pan in oven and turn to 350*. Set timer for a few minutes until butter melts. Keep an eye on it. Once melted remove and stir in graham cracker crumbs until combined. Use back of spoon and push crumbs into pan to form a crust. Pour sweetened condensed milk over crust. Sprinkle 1/2 the chocolate chips and 1/2 the m&m's over milk layer. Sprinkle nuts over top. Sprinkle coconut next. Then top with final layer of the rest of the chocolate chips and m&m's.  Bake for 25-30 minutes or until light brown in color. Let bars cool before cutting. Enjoy with your Sweetie!
