This recipe for Hello Dolly bars calls for six simple ingredients, three easy steps and 10 minutes to prep. The result is a bar cookie that is soft, chewy, and highly addictive!
I find it totally crazy I’ve never made Hello Dolly bars before last weekend. I mean, these bar cookies require minimal dishes (two if you’re thrifty) and about 10 minutes max to make; that’s already a win in my baking book. But even better, every ingredient on the list—and there are only six—is something I keep on hand, and I bet you have the same items in your pantry too!
These one-pan Hello Dolly bars have a layer of buttery graham cracker crust (Honey Maid are my go-to grahams) topped with walnuts, chocolate chips, shredded coconut (I love Baker’s coconut), and sweetened condensed milk (Carnation is my fave).
I used semisweet chocolate chips but you could try a mix of peanut butter and chocolate chips or even butterscotch and chocolate. They come closer to being seven-layer bars the more fun stuff you add. To make crushing the graham crackers easier, I prefer using a meat pounder rather than a rolling pin. I find it does as good a job, if not better, and is much more efficient at relieving stress.
This recipe has you pour the entire can of sweetened condensed milk over the top. I find that the easiest, but I’ve seen recipes where you pour half on the crust, top with the rest of the ingredients, and then finish with the remaining sweetened condensed milk. That’s one extra step, and who’s got time for that when all you really want to do is eat half the pan of Hello Dolly bars?

That sounds like an amazing cookie bar, and so easy to make too!
That’s the best part–it’s so easy!
These look so tasty! And only 10 minutes to make – even better! :)
They may take even less than 10 minutes. It’s the 25 minutes of baking that’s the hardest!

These look seriously addicting! I would eat waaaaaay too many of them!
I totally did!
Oh my word, if my other half liked coconut, we’d be in trouble because I’d be making these once every six weeks LOL. Srsly, I need to make a tiny batch just for myself. They look divine!
Make a batch and then freeze some of them for later!
