Faux Mounds Bars

I am not a big fan of dessert (unless you are talking about the French cheese course) but my husband is. Because I love my husband and love to please him, and because I love to bake, I bake desserts for my husband.

This is one of those recipes I have seen circulating for years. I don't know who originally came up with this one, but it couldn't be simpler. And Pritchard Parker liked them so that makes me happy.

Faux Mounds Bars
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup melted butter
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
2 cups flaked coconut
12 oz. semisweet chocolate chips, melted

Combine graham cracker crumbs with melted butter. Press into a 13 x 9 inch baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Combine condensed milk with coconut and spread over the crust. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Spread the melted chocolate chips all over the top and let it cool before cutting into squares.


  1. These sound easy and delicious. I'm thinking if I made those, my coconut loving kids would be super happy!

  2. These look great! Also everything is in my pantry, thanks for sharing.

  3. Coconut and chocolate are the bomb. Great stuff!
