Fall 7 Layer Bars {with M&M's and caramel chips}

ppsst! A super surprise give-a-way is coming tomorrow... if you do any kind of holiday cards, you will want to check back for it! It will be a quick one so don't miss it!
 These are the kind of cookies you  make when you expect food to cheer you up if you are grumpy. And then you decide to eat a few of these, and fore go eating lunch. True story.

These are pretty and super simple to make, and a great party pleaser, if you need a good cookie to take to a party.

1 cube butter {I use about 2/3 cube instead}
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs {I chop up these in my small food chopper}
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips {I used semi-sweet}
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup fall colored M&M's
1 cup caramel bits {the small round pieces- Kraft brand}
1 cup or less chopped up pecans {optional}
1 Can sweetened condensed milk {14 oz can- small regular size}
Preheat oven to 350 F. Melt the butter in a 9 by 13 pan in the oven. When butter is melted, take out the pan and add the graham cracker crumbs. Mix it up a little so it is evenly spread.
Next sprinkle coconut on top, followed by chocolate chips, M&M's, caramel bits, and pecans.
When done pour a 14 oz. (small size) can of sweetened condensed milk over the top.
Bake in oven for 23-28 minutes. Allow to cool completely before cutting and serving.

Be careful with  these! As always I am not responsible for any cavities, or weight gain from this recipe- except for my own.  Enjoy!
