Layers of sweet yum begin with a digestive biscuit base followed by rich and creamy sweetened condensed milk, chocolate chips, coconut and walnuts. Gorgeous sweet treat for elevenses or for some half term cooking fun in the kitchen with the kids.
I've been making these for years...They are much better when you layer as follows: melted butter, sprinkle crushed crackers next, chocolate chips, walnuts, coconut & save the sweetened milk for Last. No need to press them down either. Cook for 28 minutes & you have the best cookie ever! - 29 Nov 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
A family favorite at my house. If you use a glass pan, you need to reduce the temperature by 25 degrees or the outside edge gets very hard. - 22 Jan 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
The came out terrible. Even the guys at work did not eat them. There was no balance between the ingredients - too much crust, not enough chocolate. Parts were so hard they ended up going out to the birds. I was very careful in following the recipe, since this was the first time I had made them. I am no t a novice cook, and yes I do know the difference between evaporated and sweetened-condensed milk. - 02 Jan 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
