Magic Bars with a Twist

Today is National Potato Chip Day.  To celebrate, I thought it would be fun to throw potato chips into a bar that already has a lot of ingredients for a salty/sweet goody.

1/2 cup margarine or butter, melted
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs or 15 double squares graham crackers (crushed)
1 (14-oz.) can condensed milk
1 cup flaked coconut
2 cups crushed potato chips (leave some larger pieces throughout)
1 cup chopped nuts (I used pecans)
1 cup M&M plain candies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees (325 degrees if using a glass dish).  Put melted butter in a 13x9-inch baking pan.  Sprinkle graham cracker crumbs over margarine.  Press down with the back of a spoon.    Pour condensed milk evenly over crumbs.  Top with remaining ingredients in order listed.  Press down firmly and evenly.

Bake 25-30 minutes until lightly browned.  Cool completely (either on counter top or in the refrigerator).

Cut into bars.  Store at room temperature (though they freeze well if you want to make a double batch.)
