7 Layer Cookies

I have loved this recipe since I first made it in 1975 when I was in the 8th grade (Now do the math and you can guess my age). It has always been a part of our families Christmas cookie list.
1/2 C margarine
2 C graham cracker crumbs
1 C shredded coconut
1 12 oz pkg semisweet chocolate chips
1 11 oz pkg butterscotch chips
1/2 cup chopper nuts
1 15oz can sweeten condensed milk

Melt butter and place in a 9x13 baking pan, add graham cracker crumbs, mix and spread evenly; sprinkle over this in layers, the coconut, chocolate chips, butterscotch chips and nuts. Drizzle sweeten condensed milk over the top of all of this. Bake at 350 for 30 mins. Cut into 1 inch squares after cool.

Hot Butterscotch

At the request of my children,especially our son Kyle, who is serving on a full time proselyting mission for our church right now in the Pennsylvanian Pittsburgh mission, I am posting this recipie. This recipe was given to me by Cindy Chandler, a friend from our active duty days in the US Air Force, while we were living in Germany. It is the perfect drink for those cold days during the holiday season. It is a virgin version of Hot Butterscotch Rum. Don't think about the calories, just enjoy!
1 lb brown sugar
1 lb powder sugar
1 quart vanilla ice cream
(I always use more like, 1 1/2 quarts. Experiment to get it the way you want it)
1/2 lb butter, soften

Mix together. Put into a freezer proof container and store in freezer.
Put 2 spoonfuls in cup, fill with hot water and stir. Sprinkle with nutmeg and enjoy.
