Love Child cookies

A s’more and a macaroon walk into a bar… Have you heard this one already?  No?  Good.  Ok, so a s’more and a macaroon walk into a bar.  Nine months later, this amazing bar cookie entered the world.  I may not have a career as a comic, but I can bake some mean cookies!  Why do I call them Love Child cookies?  Because, if a s’more and a macaroon could have a love child, this would be it.

Love Child bar cookies

  • 2 packages graham crackers, crushed
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 14oz can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 3 cups shredded coconut
  • 1 12oz package chocolate chips
  • 2 cups mini-marshmallows

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly grease a 9×13 pan (if you have a bar cookie pan, use it.  If not, anything about this size works great).

2. Combine graham cracker crumbs and butter.  Press into pan.  Bake 8 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, combine remaining ingredients.  When the crust comes out of the oven, spread the coconut mixture over the crust.

4. Bake again for 10-12 minutes or until top is golden brown.

5. Cool and cut into squares.
