Directions:
Preheat oven to 350. Grease 15 x 10 x 1 cookie sheet or line with parchment
In large bowl, mix together thew oats, sweetened condensed milk, butter coconut, almonds, M&M's and cranberries with your hands until well blended. Press flat into the prepared pan.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, depending on how crunchy you want them. Lightly browned just around the edges will give you moist, chewy bars. Let cool for 5 minutes, cut into squares or bars and then let cool completely befgor serving.

It might be easier to let them cool for about 5 minutes or so and then flip upside down onto parchment on the counter. Cutting becomes a bit easier at this point.

*** When the granola is cut into squares or bars, melt the dipping wafers and drizzle the chocolate over the bars. This is completely optional.

Personal Notes:
Fantastic bars that have a lot of flexibility. You can adapt the recipe to your liking.
Use any combination of dried fruit, chocolate chips, M&M's, coconut, pecans, almond slices or maybe even some mini marshmallows. Store in air tight container. They keep quite well for a relatively long time.
