Hello Dolly Cookies

Hello Dolly cookies are a family favorite around my house.  My mom started making these cookies years ago when my sis and I were little.  They are DELICIOUS.  One of my favorite cookies ever.

During the holidays I love making these cookies.  My husband doesn’t like coconut but will eat these cookies.  He loves them.  Macie helped me make these cookies.  They are perfect for having kids help.  

First.  Crush up your graham crackers. And melt your butter. (1 whole stick)

Next.  Pour your melted butter in the bottom of a 9×13 pan.  Sprinkle your 1 cup of crushed graham cracker crumbs over it.

Sprinkle your chocolate chips over the top of the graham cracker crumbs.  You are really only supposed to use 1 cup, but I use a little more. 

On goes the coconut (1 cup).  You can add pecans or walnuts also (1 cup).  I have made it both ways and prefer it with the nuts, but I know some people don’t care for nuts.

Last pour a can of sweetened condensed milk over the top.  Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes.  Or until golden brown.  Let them sit until cool and then cut them up and serve.

Hope you enjoy this recipe.  I LOVE IT!  So easy and fun to make.

  1. How cute! We’ve been making those for about 40 years. We have always called them Marylou’s Magic Cookie Bars (after my mom)… yum!! Yummy delicious favorite!!! I blogged the recipe back in 2010.. guess it’s timeless!! 🙂 I add peanutbutter chips, butterscotch chips and use chopped peanuts instead of the other nuts… makes it almost like a Reese’s flavor.. delish!

  2. Your little helper is adorable! I love these cookies. I’ve not made them in years but I’m thinking they might make a nice treat for Super Bowl Sunday! Yum! Now I’m craving them! LOL

  3. Sounds good! But you didn’t say how much butter. Did I see 1 stick of butter? Can you use oleo? Your daughter looks cute. I’ll bet she is real help to you in the kitchen.

  4. Yum!! Looks like I’ll be trying out this cookie recipe this weekend! I can’t believe that I actually have all the ingredients except the coconut. (that never happens!) Your daughter is simply adorable!!!

  5. Wendy, oleo is short for margarine….which not true butter. Anyway, I will be making this recipe in about 30 min. when I get to the kitchen. This is my kind of recipe….simple and not many ingredients. Thanks for sharing.

    • Wendy, I have to tell you a story. I made them (with butter) but I told my mom (who has Alzheimer’s) that this was a new recipe for chocolate chip cookies. (She doesn’t like anything new.) She told me that I could make them again anytime I wanted to. They were delicious. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    • YAY! I am so glad she liked them. I mean really you would have to have no taste buds and a complete lack of testability to NOT like these things. My Gramma has Alzheimers too, I think you know that. God bless you, I know how hard it is.
