Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
1 ˝ cups Oreo crumbs (I substitute these for the original recipe’s graham cracker crumbs; either are good but I prefer Oreo)
1 stick butter
1 can Eagle brand condensed milk
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup peanut butter chips (or butterscotch or other flavored ‘meltable’ chips)
1 1/3 cups flaked coconut (optional)
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (325 degrees for glass dish).

Melt butter in 9” x 13” pan; when melted add the Oreo crumbs to cover the bottom of the pan.

Pour condensed milk over the crumbs.

Add chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, etc. plus whatever else you might want to include and press down into the condensed milk.



Bake for about 25 minutes, but watch them closely as the condensed milk turns hard as a brick if it is cooked too long – check before 25 min. is up.


I like to serve with ice cream, topped with hot fudge, and eat w/a fork. Or course, you can always just cut them and eat them like ‘bars’.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
For a quick clean up, line the pan with aluminum foil and spray the foil with PAM.

Mix the chips nuts and coconut together in a mixing bowl and then press into pan...more evenly distributes all the ingredients
