Chippy Chewy BarsLayers of yum, these bars are so easy to make you'll be taking them to your next church supper or potluck.

Recipe Ingredients:

1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 2/3 cups (10-ounce package) REESE'S Peanut Butter Chips - divided use
1 1/2 cups MOUNDS Sweetened Coconut Flakes
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated milk)
1 cup HERSHEY'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips OR HERSHEY'S MINI CHIPS Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
1 1/2 teaspoons vegetable shortening (do not use butter, margarine, spread or oil)

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Place butter in 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan. Heat in oven until melted; remove pan from oven. Sprinkle graham cracker crumbs evenly over butter; press down with fork.
  2. Sprinkle 1 cup peanut butter chips over crumbs; sprinkle coconut over chips. Layer remaining 2/3 cup peanut butter chips over coconut; drizzle sweetened condensed milk evenly over top. Press down firmly.
  3. Bake 20 minutes or until lightly browned.
  4. Combine chocolate chips and shortening in small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH (100%) 1 minute; stir. If necessary, microwave at HIGH an additional 15 seconds at a time, stirring after each heating, just until chips are melted and mixture is smooth.
  5. Drizzle evenly over top of baked mixture. Cool completely. Cut into bars.

Makes about 48 bars.

Note: For a lighter drizzle, use 1/2 cup chocolate chips and 3/4 teaspoon vegetable shortening. Microwave at HIGH 30 seconds to 1 minute or until chips are melted when stirred.
