Five Layer Bars / A gift in a jar, to give to friends during the Holidays!

This recipe is for a layered, baked bar . The ingredients are layered in a jar with a recipe card attached   and given as a gift during the Holidays!

1/2 C chopped pecans
1 C butterscotch chips
1 C shredded coconut
1 C semi sweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 C graham cracker crumbs
A Jar to layer the ingredients.
A recipe card with the instructions ( information to follow the directions)

Begin by layering a jar of your choice in the following order:
Butterscotch Chips
Chocolate Chips

Spoon the Graham Crackers into a plastic zip lock bag and place on top of the chocolate chips.
Place the lid on the jar. You'll create a recipe tag that you can tie on the jar with ribbon, raffia, yarn or even colored string. You can cover the lid with a round piece of Christmas Fabric, trimmed with Pinking Shears, tie it on and include the card.

Add a homemade recipe card with the following information:

Remove the Graham Cracker Crumbs from the Jar.
Combine them with 1 stick of butter, melted.
Press  evenly into a 9" X 13" baking dish.
Sprinkle ingredients from the jar over the crumb mixture.
Pour 1 (14oz.) can of  Sweetened Condensed Milk evenly over the layers.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Cool and cut into squares.

Peace in the Kitchen!
