Everyone Will Go Crazy for These Gooey, Sweet Squares

Kim Schlapman’s Crazy Daisy Squares are easy to make and take just 15 minutes to put together. The graham cracker crumbs and sweetened condensed milk magically come together to make an ooey-gooey bottom layer.

Typically known as Hello Dolly Bars or Magic Bars, Kim re-named this sweet treat after her daughter, Daisy, who influences the name of her brand, Love and Daisies! Daisy loves to lend a hand making these simple chocolate and butterscotch treats.

No matter what you call them, these gooey, sweet treats combine all the good stuff: shredded coconut, both butterscotch and chocolate chips, pecans, with that graham cracker base – what could be better?!
