Australian Brownies

The other day I commented on Jenny's post about Christmas cookies and whatnot. Then we had a little exchange about Christmas cookies, wherein I mentioned that I do not have a favorite Christmas cookie, but I do have this one very important Christmas recipe. This recipe screams Christmas to me, because we always made these at Christmas time. They are Australian Brownies. They're probably not really Australian, but that's what we called them. I've had them served a handful of times, always called by different names than Australian Brownies, but never by the same name. Anyway, here's the recipe. They are best served with milk. Let me know if you like them:

Australian Brownies
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 egg
1 can sweetened, condensed milk
1 cup chocolate chips

Method:
1. Mix all ingredients together.
2. Liberally grease a square pan. (8 in. x 8 in.)
3. Pour the ingredients into the pan.
4. Bake for 30 minutes at 350. (If you are using a glass pan, turn the temperature down to 325.)

Sounds like Hello Dollies. Shortened to Dollies if you want.

These sound really rich. Thanks for the recipe.

I've heard these called Magic Bars and they are one of my very favorites.

Magic rich Australian Dolly bars.
Very Christmas-y!
They're going on the menu THIS week.
(thanks!)

Sounds very similar to Fudge Cake - but we wouldn't bake it and coconut would be optional and a few other things different.

My Aussie co-worker doesn't think they are 'Australian' but when he tried them he loved them and was willing to take credit for them for his country.
