Ingredients for Bars:
1 box graham crackers
1 cup butter or margarine
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
1 cup coconut
1 cup chopped pecans
1 egg, slightly beaten

Ingredients for Frosting:
8 oz. cream cheese
1 lb. powder sugar
1 stick margarine
1 tsp vanilla
2 T canned milk

Set aside 24 whole graham crackers--use the rest for crushing. Place one layer of whole graham crackers in a 10 x 15 baking pan. In a sauce pan, melt the margarine and add sugar, milk and one slightly beaten egg. Cook stirring constantly until it comes to a full boil. Take off heat and add coconut, crushed graham crackers and chopped nuts. Pour the mixture over the first layer of graham crackers and then add another layer of graham crackers on top of the filling.

To make the frosting for the bars, mix together the cream cheese, powder sugar, margarine, vanilla and canned milk. Don't use all the canned milk at first--just use enough to make it spread easy. Spread the frosting on top of the graham crackers. Chill and cut into bars.
