Graham Cracker Crumb Bars Recipe

These little bars of goodness are perfect for those times when you told your mom that you would bring dessert to a family function, but totally forgot about it until shortly before it’s time to go and you don’t have any time to run to the store, so you have to look in your pantry and find something that you can make with the few ingredients that you have available . . . yep, these are totally perfect for times like that! Not that I would know or anything . . . 😉

Serves: 9 large squares

  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 cups flaked coconut
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 cups chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a bowl, mix the graham cracker crumbs and coconut together. Pour in the milk and melted butter and mix together until it's completely incorporated. Spray an 8x8" pan with non-stick cooking spray and press the graham cracker mixture into the pan. Bake for about 10 minutes, then take the bars out of the oven and let cool.
  2. Put the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 60 seconds. Stir, and microwave for 30-60 more seconds, or until all the chips are melted and the chocolate is smooth. Spread the chocolate over the bars, sprinkle a couple of graham cracker crumbs on top (if you want- completely optional- I just had a couple of crumbs left in the bottom of the bag, so I dumped them on top), and let cool. Cut into squares once the chocolate has hardened (you can put them in the fridge to speed up the process!).

  1. Is there a substitute for the coconut? I'm not a huge fan of coconut when it comes to desserts. I'd like to possibly try a batch with coconut and another batch of a viable substitute for coconut just in case it is not popular among the masses :) . Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!!!!
    • We googled susbstitute for coconut and this is what it said....As coconut is usually part of the dry mix, you could replace it with an equal amount of the flour used in the recipe; unprocessed bran; oats; ground nuts or even chopped dried fruit. Hope this helps! :)
