Viktorija's Santa Cookies

These are probably the most delicious chewy bar cookie I've ever eaten despite the fact that they are super sweet and decadent (not usually my thing). Viktorija made these for our Christmas party and then a couple times since and they are just so good we can't stop eating them.

Viktorija's Santa Cookies
Also known as 7 layer cookies, this is Viktorija's family recipe. She leaves these out for Santa on Christmas Eve (and carrots for Rudolph). The measurements for the chips and coconut are approximate and can be altered however you like (more peanut butter, less butterscotch etc). Just make sure to use enough coconut to cover otherwise the tops of the bars will burn.

1 1/2 cups graham cracker (crushed into crumbs with a food processor)
7tbls unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup fair trade, organic dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup all natural peanut butter chips (Many stores carry Sunspire brand)
1/2 cup butterscotch chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1.5 cans organic sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 cups sweetened flaked coconut

Preheat the oven to 350.
Place butter in a 9x13 baking pan (glass pan works too) and put it in the oven just until melted. Take the pan out of the oven and add the crushed graham crackers pressing down with a spoon or spatula to compress. Pour the condensed milk in an even layer over the butter and grahams.
In layers, sprinkle the chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, butterscotch chips, and walnuts. Press down with a spatula.
Sprinkle the coconut evenly across the top and press down lightly.
Bake until the coconut is golden (about 30 minutes), let cool and cut into squares.
