7 (I mean 6) Layer Squares

Seven Layer Squares.  One of my favorite recipes, right up there with everything else that has lots of chocolate and sugar.  However the fourth layer is walnuts.  Want to ruin a perfectly good edible treat?  You do?  By all means, just put walnuts in it. So my compromise:

Six Layer Squares

1 stick butter, melted in bottom of 9 x 13 inch pan
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
6 oz shredded coconut
6 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
6 oz butterscotch chips
1 can condensed sweetened milk (you know, the Eagle Brand stuff by Borden)

Layer the graham cracker crumbs over the butter
Layer the next ingredients in order (it's OK to go a bit over on quantities)
Drizzle condensed milk all over the whole thing (this will take a while as it comes out slowly but be patient and drizzle it all evenly)

Bake at 350º  for 25 minutes.  Edges should be just starting to brown a bit.  Cool completely then cut into small squares.

Note: You don't want to overcook this as it gets dry.  The recipe from my mother says 30 minutes but I go 25 and then check for edge browning.

Try not to each more than four while you are cutting them up as you will feel sick to your stomach shortly thereafter due to sugar overload and diabetic shock.
