Recipe by Tanya Pants
1. To give you that extra energy boost if you are one of those crazy boxing day shoppers! 2. Great recipe to make from leftover Halloween or Christmas candy or pick up the ingredients cheap on Boxing Day! This is my adaptation from a recipe originally published in Better Homes and Gardens... Feel free to substitute candies and let me know if it works (I'm thinking Snickers, chocolate covered cranberries, crushed oreo cookies... endless possibilities!)
- 1⁄8 cup butter
- 1⁄2 cup Twix candy bar, chopped (two packages regular size Twix = 4 bars)
- 1⁄2 cup chocolate covered almonds, chopped
- 1⁄2 cup M&M's plain chocolate candy (milk chocolate or dark chocolate)
- 1⁄2 cup finely chopped walnuts
- 1⁄4 cup graham cracker crumbs
- 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
- 3⁄4 cup sweetened flaked coconut
