Mounds Bars!!

Wow. This has to be one of the best recipes ever made. The chocolate topping, coconut mixture, and the graham cracker crust make it all soooo good. I doubled this recipe so I would get bigger bars, while they came out good for pictures - one big bar was making my heart burn. My brothers didn't seem to mind how big they were!
"Mounds Bars"

2 cups graham crackers, crushed
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar
14 oz. condensed milk, sweetened
1 cup shredded coconut
1 1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 tbsp. peanut butter
DIRECTIONS:
Mix together first three ingredients. Pack in a greased 9x13 in. pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Combine milk and coconut and spread over graham cracker mixture. Bake for 15 minutes more or until golden brown. Melt chips and peanut butter and spread over cooled coconut and graham cracker mixture. Refrigerate. Serve.
***It is amazing how easy it is to melt chocolate chips and peanut butter in the microwave....I used to do it on the stove and had terrible results***

Ahh, this baseball life is so hard.
