Good Eating Monday: Classic Magic Cookie Bars!

Today's recipe is a childhood favorite--the original Classic Magic Cookie Bars!
This is the vintage recipe from the 70's.
Photo is a pan of my own I made.

Classic Magic Cookie Bars
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted (1 stick)
1 1/2 cups Graham Cracker Crumbs
1 cup chopped Walnuts
1 cup semi-sweet Chocolate Chips
1 1/3 cup Shredded Sweet Coconut
1 can of Eagle Brand Condensed Milk  (regular, low-fat or non-fat)

1) Pre-heat oven to 350 and grease a 10 x 13 pan with oil cooking spray,
2)  In a small bowl, stir Graham crumbs & melted butter together with a fork until crumbs are all moist, then spread over bottom of 10 x 13 pan and pat down to form a crust.

3) Sprinkle chopped walnuts evenly over graham crust. Sprinkle chocolate chips over that and finally sprinkle coconut evenly over nuts & chips.

4)  Drizzle evenly with the condensed milk, tilting can just enough so a thin stream comes out. Work back and forth in one direction, then back and forth in the other until the whole surface of the coconut is well covered.

5)  Bake 25 minutes at 350 or till lightly brown around edges. Cool 15 minutes, then run knife along outside edges around pan to loosen,  then cut into 24 bars. 

The single Army and Air Forces guys love these and devour them!
I like to eat one when they're fresh and warm. Yum.
