Magic Cookie Bars

Magic Bars have got to be one of my favorite cookie bars. I decided this year I would try a new recipe out of each of my cookbooks. I have all these cookbooks laying around with great recipes in them. I just need to try them. This recipe came from my Eagle Brand Classic Recipes. There are several other recipes in this book that I will be trying or retrying!
Magic Cookie Bars

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 (14-ounce) can Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk (not evaporated milk)
2 cups (12 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/3 cups flaked coconut
1 cup chopped nuts

Preheat oven to 35o F (325 F for glass dish). In 13x9 inch baking pan, melt butter in oven.
Sprinkle crumbs over butter; pour Eagle Brand evenly over crumbs. Layer evenly with remaining ingredients; press down firmly.
Bake 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool. Chill, if desired. Cut into bars. Store loosely covered at room temperature.
Makes 2 to 3 dozen.
