The Hello Dolly name is a reference to the Broadway musical Hello, Dolly!, I however made it because I love Dolly Parton, so Hello Dolly in my house is because of Dolly Parton.
Now this slice is also known as magic cookie bars, Hello Dollies, seven layer bars (you can add 1 cup butterscotch chips in also to give it a seventh ingredient) or coconut dream bars. I like Hello Dolly Bars best.
I add one packet of chocolate chips, but you can add an extra 1/4 cup if you like. I have never added butterscotch chips, as I have never seen them in stores where I live. You can also add a little extra coconut, if you like.
This is quick and easy to make (you really aren't even cooking, melting the butter and crushing some biscuits is as hard as it gets) and the perfect sweet treat. You really need try these.
Makes 20-25 pieces
2 cups crushed graham crackers or digestive biscuits, about 15 digestive biscuits
140g unsalted butter, melted
200g or 1 cup chocolate chips
125g or 1 cup pecans, roughly chopped
1 cup shredded coconut
1 x 395g can sweetened condensed milk
Preheat oven to 175C/155C fan forced.
Spray with oil and line a 23cm x 23cm square baking tin with baking paper.
Crush the graham crackers (or digestive biscuits) in a bag or in a food processor, add 2 cups to a bowl. Add the melted butter and mix well.
Pour the biscuit mix into the baking dish and press down with your hand.
Sprinkle the chocolate chips on top.
Next, sprinkle the pecans on top.
Finally, sprinkle the coconut on top.
Pour the can of sweetened condensed milk over all of the ingredients.
Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the edges are golden. I like to take it a bit further and bake it until everything is golden, just start checking from 25 minutes, then bake until you like it.
Allow to cool for one hour before serving. I like to refrigerate it for an hour before slicing, as it stays together better, but you don't have to.
