Georgia Cracker Bars

Good afternoon and happy Friday!  In a perfect world Friday would be the end of everyone's work week right?  Some of us have to wait until Sunday and Monday to celebrate weekend time!  The good news is, I have a recipe to share from a friend, that is going to be easy and quick enough to make ANYTIME, weekend or not!
 

These Georgia Cracker Bars are a recipe I got from a friend.  We collaborated on our YouTube channels, picked a recipe from each others cooking playlist and made it to see what we thought!  I picked this one, and OH am I glad I did.  This will become a an absolute go to for family dinners, parties, potlucks, or anytime I need or want a quick dessert that will send my guests over the moon!  These bars definitely put GEORGIA on my mind!

Thank you Stacie for this awesome recipe. Click this link to get to her channel! I am so glad your momma made it for you!  I love family recipes, and to be honest, my family may adopt it now!

Here is what you will need:

1 box (3 packs) graham crackers  2 left whole and 1 crushed up)
3/4 cup butter (1 1/2 sticks)
1 cup evaporated milk
1 egg
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup sweetened coconut, flakes or shredded
1 pack of crushed graham crackers
1 T vanilla extract

Line a 9x13 cake pan with one layer of graham crackers.  Leave them whole, it will take the entire package, or almost.  Now in a saucepan add, butter, brown sugar, evaporated milk with the egg beaten in it, combine all ingredients and bring to a boil.  STIR CONSTANTLY!  After it begins to boil let it boil for 2 minutes, while continuing to stir.  Bring it off the heat and add in pecans, coconut, crushed graham crackers and vanilla.  Combine thoroughly.  Pour over graham crackers and spread out evenly.  Now use the last package of graham crackers to top the filling.  (see video)

Icing:
2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup melted butter
2 T evaporated milk
1 tsp vanilla extract 

Whisk to combine all ingredients into a smooth icing.  Spread over the last layer of graham crackers.
I refrigerated mine for 1 hour.  Perfectly slices into bars and WOW are they good!

ENJOY!
