Doris’ Bars

on July 11, 2014

These bars are so good. Period. I love coconut so I have always really liked Doris’ Bars. Bars really are so great for the summer, when you can get them done fast and keep the kitchen heat to a minimum. I think these are named for one of Grandma’s sisters-in-law who unfortunately passed away this week at the age of 95, so I’m honoring her today. She was always a happy person – always smiling and so kind and so nice. She will be missed.

Doris' Bars

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Doris’ Bars

Mix together:

2 cups of graham cracker crumbs

1/2 cup of white sugar

1/2 cup butter, melted

Line a 9″ x 13″ pan with crumbs, pat down, and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

Put on top of that:

2 cups coconut

1 can sweetened condensed milk

1 12 ounce package of chocolate chips

Bake for another 15 minutes or until coconut browns around the edges.


After putting the graham cracker crumb mixture into the pan, I took a fork and patted it down a bit.


You can see the browned coconut around the edges after baking.


Dessert is a great reason to make these bars.


Afternoon coffee is a great reason to make these bars.

You don’t need a reason to make these bars.

Just do it!
