Turtle Bars

"I came up with this recipe one Christmas when I had received turtle candies in my stocking.  You know the ones made with pecans and caramel and covered in yummy chocolate.  I wanted to use them in a recipe and this is what I came up with.  They remind me of the classic magic cookie bars that I ate as a child, just updated a little.  YUM!"

1 stick of butter, melted
1-1/2 cups of chocolate graham cracker crumbs
1 (7 ounce) package of flaked, sweetened coconut
1 (11.5 ounce) package of milk chocolate chips
1 (10.5 ounce) package of Turtle chocolates, chopped (I love Nestle Turtles.)
1 (14 ounce) can of sweetened condensed milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line a 13x9 baking pan with aluminum foil, leaving about 2 inches of foil hanging over the edge of the pan in order to lift the bars out of the pan.  Spray foil with non-stick cooking spray.  Mix melted butter and graham cracker crumbs together.  Press firmly onto bottom of pan.  Sprinkle with coconut, chocolate chips and chopped turtles.  Pour condensed milk over the top.  Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.  Cool on wire rack.  When completely cooled, use foil to lift bars out of pan.  Cut bars and serve.
