Cuisine: American
Ingredients
  • 2 Cups of graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 C. butter, melted
  • 1 14 oz. Can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 ½ C. flaked coconut
  • 1 C. white chocolate chips
  • 1 C. M&Ms
  • Non-­stick spray such as Pam
Instructions
  1. Place graham crackers into a large ziploc bag and use a rolling pin to crush them.
  2. Melt butter and add to the crushed graham crackers. Coat 9x13 baking dish with non-­stick spray and press the crumbly graham cracker and butter crumb mixture evenly into the bottom of the dish.
  3. Pour the sweetened condensed milk evenly over the graham cracker mixture.
  4. Layer remaining ingredients over the graham cracker mixture and press down firmly with a fork so they 'stick'.
  5. Bake on 325 for 25­-30 minutes. The coconut will turn a nice golden brown color.
Notes
Great for other holidays like Christmas (using the red/white/green M&Ms), Halloween (using Reese's Pieces), Easter (using Pastel M&Ms). You can also add nuts if you like. Add or take away some of the white chips and M&Ms. It's a very versatile recipe that you can truly adjust to your liking.

 

M&M Coconut Bars 2

While these are Valentine’s Day themed due to the fun pink, red and white M&M’s, you could switch it up for holidays like Christmas using the red/green M&M’s, Easter with the Pastel M&M’s or Halloween using Reese’s Pieces. This treat is so versatile and you can have lots of fun putting so many different goodies into it.

I would love to know if you try this recipe, how you liked it. Really, though, it’s tough to go wrong with coconut and chocolate!

    These sound so yummy and delicious. They are cute too with the pink and red M&M’s. I want some. …lol
    Thank you for the recipe.

  34. 35

    These are very similar to the classic 7 layer bars that I loved as a child. No nuts and M & Ms instead of chocolate chips is the basic difference as far as I can see. I love that the star is coconut, mmm!

  35. 36

    These look soo good – I’d like to make these with 4th of July m&ms – if they have them – I’m checking asap when I go shopping! Perfect picnic dessert!
