Krispy Bar Cookies

3 cups rice krispy cereal
1 stick butter, melted
1 cup coconut
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup finely chopped nuts
1 can swettened condensed milk

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  In a large bowl combine cereal and butter, mixing well.  Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with non-stick spray.  Spread cereal evenly in dish.  Top with coconut, chips and nuts.  Pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over dish.  Bake 35 minutes.  Cool completely before cutting.  Makes about 16 squares.

Comments:  This is a fun recipe to play with.  It originally called for 1 cup of graham cracker crumbs but I wanted to give it a try with the cereal.  I also poured half of the cereal mix into 2 8" round cake pans topping one with coconut, chocolate chips and pecans.  The other with coconut, white chocolate chips and chopped peanuts.  Then drizzled each with 1/2 can of the milk each.  Either way you make these they will be a hit.  Think With Your Taste Buds and change up the cereal, nuts and chips.  One mistake I made was getting too impatient before cutting.  They must be completely cooled before cutting to get nice, smooth pieces.
