This is one of those wonderful old recipes that so many people made years ago but today’s cooks don’t make it very often. It’s very much like the scrumptious old Magic Cookie Bars recipe and I’m gonna tell you right up front that this Mounds Bars Candy is not diet food.

No, this is the complete opposite of diet food. It’s rich and buttery and chocolatey and all things good. But it’s not going to help you lose those last few pounds left on your diet goal sheet.

The original recipe called for this to be cut into bars the size of candy bars. I, however, cut mine into teeny tiny little squares because it’s so rich. A little 1×1 square of this works just fine for me! Hope you enjoy this little “blast from the past.”

How to Make Homemade Mounds Bars Candy

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Prepare a graham cracker crust by mixing together the graham cracker crumbs, sugar and melted butter. Pat evenly into a 9×13 pan. Bake for 7 minutes.

Remove the pan from the oven and pour over the sweetened condensed milk, spreading it evenly over the crust. Distribute the coconut evenly over the milk. Bake for an additional 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.

While the cooked layers are cooling, make the frosting. Combine the sugar, milk and butter. Bring to a boil and cook for 30 seconds. Add the chocolate chips. Remove the pan from the heat and beat until the chips are completely melted, the frosting has cooled slightly and is a spreadable consistency.

Spread the frosting over the cooked layers to cover completely. Allow to cool completely in pan.

Cut into approximately 1″ x 1″ pieces.
