Raspberry Coconut Bars

I was in the mood for something sweet yesterday
- - - - -
This was in my "Gotta try before Christmas" I whipped them up!
To me they were similar to magic cookie bars, but having the raspberry with the chocolate was even yummier...and I love my magic cookie bars :)

This recipe is start to finish in 30 minutes so great for a quick throw together that doesn't look or taste fast!
- - - - -
Start with a basic graham cracker crumb and butter 13x9 crust
After pressing into the pan, sprinkle coconut in a thick layer over top. Then drizzle an entire can of sweetened condensed milk.

Then bake it for about 20 minutes until it looks THIS good!
Throw it outside or in the fridge till cooled all the way.

Then spread a jar of raspberry jam over top and sprinkle with nuts of choice. I used pecans here!
Then drizzle melted chocolate and melted white chocolate over the top to make em pretty!

These turned out very pretty and SUPER YUMMY!
Happy Baking!
