Valentine M&M Cookie Bars

1 (14 oz.) can Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk

2 cups (12 oz. pkg.) Valentine M&M’s Chocolate Candy

Heat your oven to 350 degrees.
In the bottom of a 13 x 9-inch baking pan add melted butter. Make sure the butter is distributed evenly in pan. Gently pour graham cracker crumbs over the top and press down lightly with your hands. Pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over crumbs. Layer with half of the marshmallows, M&M’s, the remaining marshmallows and top with the coconut. Press down firmly with your hands.
Bake for about 30-35 minutes or until the marshmallows and coconut are lightly browned. Cool on wire rack then cut into bars.
