This looks soooo yummy. I think I will try it with a cashew sweetened condensed milk...Is that unsweetened coconut (I hope = ) ?

I made this last night but I don't think it turned out right. Tasted good, but didn't look very appetizing - or anything like the photo.

Great recipe. Took this into work a few months ago and everyone loved them. I had request to bring them back in. I find if you melt the butter and then add the graham cracker crumbs into melted butter and mix well then press into baking dish it works so much better. Gives the bars a nice solid base and you end up with less graham cracker crumbs in baking dish at cutting time.

Why is there a link to Homemade evaporated milk but doesn't go there?
