Do you have a specialty that you have to make in order for it to feel like Christmas? We do. If I only make one goodie for the holidays . . . it has to be Mounds Bars.
When I was in college, my parents where still in Viet Nam. So I spent summers and Christmas vacation with the Smith family. Shirley was an awesome cook and Mounds Bars is just one of her recipes that I love.
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 1/2 cubes of melted butter
1/4 cup powdered sugar
Mix together and press into a 9 X 13" pan. Bake for 10 minutes at 325 degrees.
Mix 7 ounce package of coconut with one can sweetened condensed milk and spread over baked crust.
Bake for 15 more minutes.
Remove from oven and spread with 6 ounce package of chocolate chips and a 6 ounce package of butterscotch chips, that have been melted in a double boiler.
Cool and then place in the refrigerator for 20 minutes to set the chocolate.
Try them this weekend . . . an early Christmas gift to your family.
