Million Dollar Bars

Good morning!

One of the reasons I am not a big baker is because of how precise and tedious it is. When I cook I like to ballpark measurements, throw random ingredients in, etc. With baking, you can’t really do that and it makes me turn away. BUT, these bars allow for that versatility and are SO EASY to make. Which is why I love them. If you don’t like coconut, you can leave it out. My mom loves butterscotch and I love white chocolate so we split the amount of chocolate it calls for in thirds and did 1/3 white, 1/3 milk, and 1/3 butterscotch. Basically, you have the freedom to do a lot with these bars, which is why I wanted to post about them today!

Happy Monday!
