Sweet & Salty Squares 'a la Lish'

So sometimes while baking with little people around, oopsies happen. Oopsies like, I put in a cup of butter instead of half a cup. So I swear under my breath and then try to double up the recipe...only this time I didn't have enough of the 'inside' ingredients to double up. I was making this recipe{which OMG you have to try!}

So I made one batch of those and put the rest of the batter in the fridge.

Then I had a light bulb moment a few days later while preparing to make these {which are also soooo yummy & make a great hostess gift!Only I have a different recipe for the caramel sauce-if you want to try that out let me know-mine not as gooey} Anyway, on to my light bulb moment...

Instead of going out and buying new ingredients I whipped these little squares up with stuff I already had on hand...

2 cups of coconut
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
1.5 cups of chopped pecans
2 cups of chopped pretzels
1 cup of skor bits

Although, you can add whatever you like and in whatever amount, cause were making this up as we go right?!

As a base use the same recipe for the base of the Nutella Smore Bars and then press into a greased 9x13 pan.

Pour the condensed milk over top of the base and then sprinkle the ingrediants above on top of that.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 30-40 minutes, until bubbly and brown!

The combination of sweet and salty is perfect!
And there you have it Sweet & Salty Sqaures 'a la Lish' :)

My husband is a big fan of salty/sweet baked goods...I'm definitely making these for him this weekend. I am the worst at goofing doubling it then forgetting halfway through or getting distracted and forgetting an ingredient. Sometimes it turns out okay (like these bars!) and sometimes they look pretty from the trash can. :)
