Looking for the Recipe

I need a recipe for a particular cookie but I don't know the name. It's a bar cookie. The bottom is some kind of cookie crust or graham cracker crust. It uses sweetened condensed milk, coconut, and chocolate chips and possibly nuts. All of that is mixed together and spread on top of the crust then it's baked. I'm not sure if the crust is baked first or not. Does anyone know which recipe I am looking for?

Bolas, thanks, that looks like a great recipe but I think that medtran is more on my track. But I am definately going to try those Millionaire shortbread cookies. I adore shorbread!
Thanks Medtran. I think this is what I am looking for.

You're welcome. I hope that is the right recipe. It's one I'll never forget. My mother LOVED those things and made them a lot when I was a kid and every time you'd go to a church dinner or some other social gathering, there they'd be cause somebody would bring them since they are so easy to make. Can you tell it was kind of overkill for me?

My recipe is similar to medtran's but is a bit different. We called it Rocky Road.

1 stick butter or margarine
1 1/2 c graham cracker crumbs
1 pkg chocolate chips
1 pkg butterscotch chips
1 cup coconut
1 cup pecan pieces (you want to roughly chop the pecans, not leave them whole but not make them too small either)
1 can sweetened condensed milk

Melt butter and pour in 9x13 baking dish
add graham cracker crumbs and form a crust in the bottom of pan
Layer in order choc. chips, butterscotch chips, coconut and pecans
Drizzle can of milk over top

bake 350° for 30 mins. Let cool 10-15 mins and cut into squares while still a bit warm. Leave in pan until completely cool.

This is the easiest thing to make. I haven't made it in a while so now when I go to the store tomorrow I'll have to pick up the stuff to make this!

In my area they are called Hello Dollys or Santa Snacks. My mother made a variation where she left out the chocolate and butterscotch chips. She replaced them with candied fruit, cheries and pineapple. I did not appreciate those as a kid but, now I make them both at holiday time.

Yes, there are lots of variations of this recipe. I remember someone making them with Andes mints and they were heavenly. I just pulled medtrans recipe out of the oven. Can't wait for them to cool. But they are supposed to be for a piano recital for a young man at our church. He is an absolute wizard on the piano and his folks are having some really tough times just now so of course everyone wants to pitch in to help. I'm sure they will appreciate this classic recipe. Thanks everyone.
