  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs about 6 graham crackers
  • 4 tablespoons salted butter melted
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • ½ cup chocolate chips
  • ½ cup butterscotch chips
  • ½ cup chopped pecans
  • ¾ cup sweetened shredded coconut


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line an 8x8-inch baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Add the crumbs, melted butter, and salt to a small bowl and mix until thoroughly combined.
  • Add the crumbs to the prepared pan and use the bottom of a flat glass or your hands to press the crumbs down evenly to cover the bottom.
  • Pour the sweetened condensed milk evenly over the graham cracker crust.
  • Sprinkle half of the chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, and pecans on top of the sweetened condensed milk.
  • Sprinkle the coconut over the chips then top with the remaining chips and nuts and gently press down.
  • Bake for 25 minutes, the top should be a golden brown and the center will still wiggle. Allow to cool completely on a wire rack before slicing and enjoying.


  1. These can easily be doubled and made in a 9x13-inch pan.
  2. You can use any chocolate chips you like, we like to use semi-sweet.
  3. If you are not a fan of butterscotch chips you can swap them out with more chocolate chips or even peanut butter chips are great.
  4. These can be frozen, see my tips above.
  5. I recommend using a straight edged pan for baking these (nothing with rounded edges) for the best outcome.
  6. Depending on how sweet you want these you can use sweetened or unsweetened coconut.
