    Family did not care for these. 😕 too sweet. Too rich.

    The graham cracker bottom on these is not a good combination. The graham cracker crumbs are mixed only with butter. I hoped my skepticism would be proven wrong, but this layer needs sugar in order to caramelize and stick together. I hoped that I was wrong because of the sweetened condensed milk on top of the crumbs, but they do not come together while baking and the crumb bottom just falls off and crumbles everywhere while cutting and eating the bars, not to mention it tastes bland on the bottom, not like a typical graham cracker crust that has sugar/brown sugar. If I attempt these again, I will definitely add a 1/4 cup or so of brown sugar. The rest of the bar tasted really great, but this bottom layer was such a disappointment in flavor and since half of it would fall off it was a waste.

    Can I just grease the bottom of the glass baking dish if I don’t have any parchment paper?

    Hi, I wanted to make these and I see on the recipe the choc chips come before the oats but when you give instructions you say layer the oats then choc chips etc. Does it matter what order? I have a similar recipe and some of the layers are put in to help hold all the goodies together. So should oats be on top of the condensed milk or between the choc chips and butterscotch chips. Thank you! Can’t wait to try it. I’m using reg M&Ms and making it as a birthday treat!

    Hi! How long do these need to cool once they come out of the oven? Thanks!

    Is it ok to use a metal or glass baking dish?

    Can you substitute rolled oats for quick oats?

  9. Kristen says:

    Do you have the nutrition information for these?

  10. Debbie says:

    Made these & they are very good and so simple to make. The only thing I added was pecans and they were excellent!

    I just spent $20 on ingredients to make this gluten free. I failed to know that wax paper is not the same as parchment paper and isn’t meant for the oven 😭 Is there any hope in saving these?

    1. Passion For Savings says:

      Hi Alexis, oh no! Yes, you need to use parchment paper not wax paper in the oven. At high temps in the oven the wax can melt and possibly transfer onto the baked goods. Another option is a silicone baking mat if you don’t have the parchment paper.

    Going to make these for the family Easter dinner.

  13. Angela says:

    You should address what size can of sweetened condensed milk, as I didn’t know and disappointedly messed up the recipe. thanks

    1. Passion For Savings says:

      Hi Angela, it’s a 14 oz can. Thanks for the note, it’s now added into the recipe! :)
