Hello Dolly Bars
Some people call them Nanaimo bars, some call them “crack”, and I call them Hello Dolly bars. This week I’m starting off by posting about these deliciously decadent bars, but will follow-up later this week with a healthier bar that I actually like to eat for breakfast.
I’ve really been on a baking kick lately, maybe I’m trying to forget all of my problems in a sugar abyss or better yet-maybe it’s because I think sharing sweet treats is a simple joy in life.
This past weekend I had two gatherings to attend-a Summer BBQ party with all of my work peeps and an outdoor movie night hosted annually by neighbors. For both, I offered to bring something sweet to savor.
Hello Dolly Bars (recipe from family friend, Eve)
- 1 1/4 cup (approximately 15 single) crushed graham crackers (I used my food processor to crumble)
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 1/2 cup mixture of chocolate chips (milk and/or semi-sweet) and butterscotch chips
- 1/2 cup walnuts (chopped)
- 1/2 cup mini-marshmallows
- 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
Place butter in a 9×13 inch pan and melt in 350 degree oven. Once melted mix in graham cracker crumbs and spread evenly on bottom of pan.
Sprinkle with chips, nuts and top with marshmallows.
Drizzle condensed milk over evenly. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Cool and cut into squares.
Our neighbors showed Galaxy Quest for this Summer’s movie. I thought it was quirky and highly entertaining. Hubby and I had a perfect time-a bottle of wine, buttered popcorn, clear skies, stars, a funny movie, and Hello Dolly bars to share with our friends. A perfect way to spend a summer night before Labor Day weekend approaches…….
How are you spending what remains of Summer 2012???!
I like this recipe because it doesn’t have coconut like others I’ve seen!! 🙂
I was actually thinking it would be yummy to add coconut! 😉
This is too funny…I am actually making this bars for a work bbq on friday, lol…they are a little different http://www.thekitchn.com/recipe-nanaimo-bars-the-canadi-101529
Ooh! I’ll have to check out the recipe you’re using. The Hello Dolly bars are so good and easy to make!
mmm… thanks for the recipe!
These look amazing. I really should get my act together and start cooking and baking like a grown up.
Thanks Tribby, they are easy and yummy!

I picked up the ingredients for this yesterday and now looking at it, i realized I forgot the condensed milk!
Oops, that is one ingredient you’ll definitely need. 🙂
I must have done something wrong cause they did not turn out as beautiful as yours! We’ll have to try again!
I’m sure they tasted perfect though! 🙂 Try them again! 🙂
