Bacon Fairytales: Attack of the Bacon Bowl (And the 7-Layer Magic Bacon Bars)

I had was on sale...

What better way to share Bacon with people, but a bake sale?  I've been in the kitchen all afternoon working on 2 bacon items for tomorrow's sale.  Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies with Bacon and 7-Layer Magic Bacon Bars.  Sharing bacon makes me happy.  

This week's recipe is the Truly Magical 7-Layer Bacon Bars.   My only hope is that both go early during tomorrow's Bake Sale.  That's the best compliment one can receive.  

7-Layer Magic Bacon Bars
5 slices of thick-cut bacon
1 stick unsalted butter, melted
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (about 6-7 full sheets)
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips
1 1/2 cup shredded coconut
1 can sweetened condensed milk

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray.  Line slices of bacon on baking sheet and bake until golden brown, about 17-20 minutes.  Place bacon strips on top of paper towels to drain and set aside.
Lower oven heat to 350.

Melt butter in a microwave-safe bowl and add graham cracker crumbs to butter and mix with a wooden spoon.

Spray a 13×9″ pan with cooking spray and spread graham cracker crumbs on the bottom.

Once bacon has cooled, break into small crumbles or pieces.  In a mixing bowl, toss the bacon, chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, and coconut together and spread over graham crackers.

Spread the condensed milk over the top.

Bake for 25-30 minutes or until graham cracker crust is golden brown.  Allow bars to cool completely before cutting into squares and serving.
