White Chocolate Cherry Hello Dollies

These White Chocolate Cherry Hello Dollies
take the traditional bar cookie to an entirely new level.

If you were around these parts a few of weeks ago, you've probably figured out I'm on a bit of a Hello Dolly kick. I shared my mom's original Hello Dolly recipe with you here. And today, I've mixed it up and swapped out the original chocolate and butterscotch with white chocolate and dried cherries. INSANE! They're so gooooood, you guys. The tartness of the cherries pairs so nicely with the smooth white chocolate flavor. Bar perfection.

And...cherries ALWAYS make me think of springtime. I'm going to will it here if it's the last thing I do!

Ingredients:
1 stick butter
2 cups graham cracker crumbs (about 12 rectangular planks)
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup dried cherries
1 cup chopped pecans
1 1/2 cups shredded sweetened coconut
1 can sweetened condensed milk

{optional}: cherry preserves for drizzle



Directions:
While oven is preheating to 325 degrees, place butter stick in 9x13" pan and place inside oven to melt. Check it every few minutes so it doesn't brown. When butter is melted, remove pan from oven. Sprinkle graham cracker crumbs on top of melted butter, spreading with the back of the spoon. Gently press down into pan with the back of the spoon. Top evenly with white chocolate chips and dried cherries, pecans and coconut. Poor sweetened condensed milk over entire pan of ingredients. 

Bake for 25 minutes.

{optional}: Allow condensed milk to set for at least an hour. Warm up about 1/4 cup of cherry preserves in the microwave for 20 seconds. Drizzle preserves over the top of the bars. Allow to cool 

Allow to set completely before cutting into squares or rectangles.
