For the Crust:

For the Toppings:


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9x13 pan with parchment paper and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, stir melted butter together with graham cracker crumbs until moist. Press evenly into the bottom of 9x13 pan using the bottom of a measuring cup.
  • Top crust with chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, coconut and pecans. Drizzle the top with sweetened condensed milk as evenly as possible. If it isn't spread evenly, use the back of a spoon or butter knife to spread. Sprinkle the top with sea salt.
  • Bake 25 minutes or until bars have set and edges have browned slightly. Cool completely, then cut into 20 even bars. Store and serve at room temperature.


The beauty of these bars is you can change up the toppings and turn them into a completely different dessert! Try white chocolate chips, macadamia nuts, dark chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, peanuts, almonds, walnuts, even chopped up oreos or mini marshmallows.
