Outrageous Cookie Bars – A Treat Everyone Loves

I brought these Outrageous Cookie Bars to our friend’s cabin recently. Everyone loved them! When we headed home, I left behind a stash of bars, knowing, they would probably be enjoyed by guests coming the following weekend. I had to smile when Tracey texted this past Saturday from the cabin. Her text included a picture of the one remaining bar (and it was only noon) along with a request for the recipe. It appears that Tracey’s daughter and grandsons enjoyed these bars as well!

I confess. If my friend Tracey had not asked for this recipe, I was not planning to share it.  These bars are essentially the same as the 7 layer bar. My recipe just happens to call them Outrageous Cookie Bars. Since they tend to show up at all of my family picnics, I assumed everyone had this recipe. But I am totally willing to respond to a request. Tracey, this one is for you!

Outrageous Cookie Bars

Serving Size: 2 to 3 dozen bars


  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 12 ounce package chocolate chips (I use semi sweet)
  • 1 cup flaked coconut
  • 1 cup chopped nuts (I use pecans)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter in 13 x 9 baking pan in oven (glass pan is preferred.)
  • Remove pan from oven and sprinkle graham cracker crumbs over butter. Stir well, then press onto bottom of pan.
  • Pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over crumbs. Sprinkle with chocolate chips, coconut and nuts. Press down firmly.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Enjoy!

  1. We so enjoyed our visit to your cabin. Thanks again for inviting us. I think all of the outdoor time at the cabin makes everything taste better! That’s the way it seems at my cabin too. So glad you kept a small personal stash for yourself. I totally get that.;-)

  2. I know I have made the 7 layer bars before, but I don’t remember them being this good. What a treat to have good friends to the cabin for the weekend (great company was enough) but all the wonderful food you made us was just the icing on the cake. I still have a few of these bars hidden in my freezer for the next time I am up there, yum!
