Easy Snack Bars

This is a quick and easy sweet treat. I used semi-sweet chocolate chips because that's what was in the pantry but Ransome said he wants white chips next time. Peanut butter chips might be equally tasty also. These are a great after swimming snack. The kiddos have been swimming like little fish in Beaty's Creek this week and will come home absolutely famished. Do you remember that? Swimming all day and coming home so hungry even an apple looked good. Try this recipe and you are sure to win points with your kiddos! This is What's Cookin on Beaty's Creek today.


2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 cups flaked coconut
1/4 cup margarine, melted
1 can sweetened condensed milk
3 cups chocolate chips

In a medium bowl, mix graham cracker crumbs, coconut, sweetened condensed milk, and butter. Mix until smooth. Press into a greased 8x8 pan.
Bake for 10 minutes in a 325' oven. As soon as you take it out of the oven add your chocolate chips. When they melt swirl them around. Cool, if you can let them and enjoy!
