Hello, Dolly Bars

I needed a quick dessert for a party recently.  I also found myself with an abundance of pecans on my hands, which is never a bad thing, but....I did need to start using them before they were classified as vintage.  I put together these bars and it was a big hit.  The original recipe came from homestyle.
Hello Dolly Bars
Ingredients:  1 1/2 c. finely crushed graham crackers (one sleeve-about 9 graham crackers), 2 c. of milk chocolate chips, 1 1/2 c. of shredded coconut, 1 1/2 c. of chopped pecans (or walnuts), 14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk, 1/2 cup of butter (melted)
Instructions:  

1.  Pour melted butter into an 11x7 pan, add crushed graham crackers in pan, and mix well with melted butter to form a crust.  Press into the bottom of the pan. 
2.   Layer on top of  crust chocolate chips, coconut,  and pecans.3.  Evenly pour sweetened condensed milk over everything.4.  Bake in oven for 25 to 30 minutes at 350 (top should be light brown).5.  Let cool in pan for at least an hour so the chocolate can harden, cut into bars.
