Wonder Bars? Wait, what are they called?

The other night I did a little re-vamp on a tried and true recipe. I call them...wonder bars. The names was coined by my friend Sharon who has an impossible time remembering the name and blurted this one out one time - and it caught on. She also calls them "crack" bars since they are really addictive and you can't stop at just one piece. But a post entitled: "How to Make Crack" is not really something I'm comfortable with ;)

The recipe is the same as before, except this time I lined the pan with foil and I make it in a cake pan so there'd be a little less. I also cut down on the condensed milk. Here's the modified version:

3/4 cup butter, cut into small pieces
1/2 cup confectioners sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup oats
1 cup chocolate chips
9 oz condensed milk
1 cup shredded sweetened coconut

Start by preheating the oven to 375 degrees. Prepare a cake pan by lining it with foil and spraying with PAM.

In a food processor pulse butter, sugar, flour, and salt. Then add oats and pulse again. Pack into the bottom of the pan and bake until golden brown - 20 minutes.

Once it comes out, let it cool for about 5 minutes.

Sprinkle over the chips and any other toppings you want to use Drizzle over the condensed milk, then the coconut, making sure to cover the top completely.

Bake another 15 minutes, until the coconut is browned.
