Easy Layer Bars

This is one of those recipes that everyone has a version of. Look it up on Google....there is a million, maybe even a billion, different versions.
I know what you are thinking when you see think it looks burnt.
It's not.
I swear.
It's Oreo baking crumbs. You could make this with graham cracker crumbs and it wouldn't look burnt...well....unless you actually burnt it...but it wouldn't have the chocolately goodness of the Oreo crumbs.
This is my version of the easy layer bar. Believe's super easy.
Easy Layer Bar
2 cups Oreo baking crumbs
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup Skor toffee bits
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup butterscotch chips
1/2 cup salted peanuts, coarsely chopped
1 cup shredded coconut, toasted
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
Preheat oven to 350. Line a 9 X 13 pan with parchment paper, set aside.
Mix together Oreo crumbs and melted butter until well combined. Press firmly into prepared pan.
Sprinkle the layer ingredients over the crust, except for the condensed milk.
Then pour the sweetened condensed milk over the bar as evenly as possible.
Bake at 350 for approx 20 - 25 minutes, until bars are set.
Remove from oven and let cool on wire rack. When cool, use parchment paper to remove bar from pan and cut into squares.
These are so easy. As you can see from the recipe you can mix it up however you like.
Don't like Oreo crumbs? Use vanilla wafer crumbs or graham crumbs.
You could sub out chocolate chips with white chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, dark chocolate, cinnamon chips, etc...
Go crazy!
It is a little thin...I'm pretty sure I usually make this in a 9 X 9 pan as I remember it being a little thicker the last time I made it.  It's been a while...
Hmmm...anyway, 9 X 9 or 9 X 13....either will work, just watch your cooking time with different sized pans.
