Magic Bars

Mark and I used to love getting these bars from the student union at U of A.  I know they do not exactly fit into our low-carb diet but we had signed up for dessert for our Bible study and I can't miss out on the opportunity to try a new recipe.

1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup chopped walnuts
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup butterscotch chips
1 1/2 cups flaked coconut
1 1/3 cups sweetened condensed milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a 9 x 13 inch pan pour in melted margarine. Sprinkle the graham cracker crumbs evenly over the margarine. Next place the chopped nuts over the crumbs, and spread the chocolate and butterscotch chips over the nuts. Add the coconut over all, and pour the milk evenly over the top.
Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until lightly brown on top. Cool at least 20 minutes then cut into desired sized bars.
