Scrumptious Chocolate Mint Layer Bars

The name of these bars aren't kidding, they really are *scrumptious*! My grandma sent me this recipe and I decided it would be perfect for Travis' December work potluck. If you like chocolate and minty stuff, like Thinmints, then you'll love these! Plus they have bonus yumminess like coconut and walnuts!

Scrumptious Chocolate Mint Layer Bars

2 C cookie crumbs (it calls for Oreos, but I just had chocolate covered grahams which works too)
1/4 C butter
1 1/2 C chopped nuts
1 C flaked coconut
1 C sweetened condensed milk
1 1/3 C dark chocolate chips
1 1/3 C mint chips

Preheat oven to 350. Melt butter in 13x9 inch pan in oven. Then mix in the cookie crumbs. Stir well and press into bottom of pan to make a crust. Sprinkle nuts and coconut on top. Pour condensed milk evenly over top. Sprinkle chocolate chips and mint chips on top and press down slightly. Bake 20-25 minutes or until coconut is slightly golden brown. Cool pan on wire rack completely, then cut into bars.
