Ooey Gooey Bars

Ooey Gooey Bars are a delicious dessert consisting of a buttery crust layered with sweetened condensed milk, chocolate chips, and sometimes nuts or coconut. They are baked until golden and gooey, hence the name. Here’s a basic recipe for Ooey Gooey Bars:


  • 1 ½ cups graham cracker crumbs
  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped nuts (such as walnuts or pecans), optional
  • 1 cup shredded coconut, optional


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking pan or line it with parchment paper.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs and melted butter until well mixed. Press the mixture evenly into the bottom of the prepared baking pan to form the crust.
  3. Pour the sweetened condensed milk evenly over the crust.
  4. Sprinkle the chocolate chips (and nuts and coconut, if using) evenly over the condensed milk layer, pressing them down gently into the mixture.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown and the center is set.
  6. Remove from the oven and let cool completely before cutting into bars.
  7. Once cooled, cut into squares or bars and serve. Enjoy your delicious Ooey Gooey Bars!
