The classic Hello Dolly receipe is so much better and less sugary. We did press down the crust (or it falls apart as others mentioned). Did not use butterscotch, used semi-sweet chips only. Used Walnuts instead of pecans. And used judgement on drizzling the condensed milk, cause, yes, an entire can is WAY TOO MUCH. We have experimented over the years with adding dried cherries and almonds. We also liked a version where we added peanut butter chips. Light, however, it is not. Enjoy it for what it and don't make it very often.

- 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (about 9 cookie sheets)
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 tablespoon water
- 1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 1/3 cup butterscotch morsels
- 2/3 cup flaked sweetened coconut
- 1/4 cup chopped pecans, toasted
- 1 (15-ounce) can fat-free sweetened condensed milk
- Preheat oven to 350°.
- Line the bottom and sides of a 9-inch square baking pan with parchment paper; cut off excess parchment paper around top edge of pan.
- Place crumbs in a medium bowl. Drizzle with butter and 1 tablespoon water; toss with a fork until moist. Gently pat mixture into an even layer in pan (do not press firmly). Sprinkle chips and morsels over crumb mixture. Top evenly with coconut and pecans. Drizzle milk evenly over top. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until lightly browned and bubbly around edges. Cool completely on wire rack.
They can create a sticky mess in the pan, so it's crucial to line it with parchment paper. Because the milk needs to seep into the graham cracker crumbs, don't pack the crumbs too tightly in the bottom of the pan.
