Sweet and Salty Layer Bars

This simple layered dessert uses up the last of the pretzels, baking chips, and dried fruits that are sitting in your cupboards. With a hint of salt to break up the sweet, these bars are just right for any occasion.

I just took a job at a cute little bakery and the Sweet and Salty bar is one of our most popular items. I modified the recipe a bit to be small batch friendly and so that you guys could make these easily.

Recipe Type: Dessert, Baking
Ingredients
  • ½ cup butter, melted
  • 1½ cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate morsels
  • 1⅓ cups flaked coconut
  • 1 cup peanuts
  • 1 cup broken up pretzel sticks
  • 1 cup of dried cherries
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat 13x9-inch baking pan with non-stick cooking spray (I did a couple tart pans instead of a 9x13, either works great!)
  2. Combine graham cracker crumbs and butter with a spoon. Press it evenly into bottom of the greased pan. Layer evenly with chocolate chips, coconut, nuts, pretzels, and cherries and pour sweetened condensed milk over everything as evenly as possible.
  3. Bake 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Let them cool before trying to cut them. That's it!
