    Remove from the oven and spread the coconut over the top in an even layer. Next layer the semi-sweet chocolate chips, butterscotch chips and dark chocolate chips. Evenly drizzle the sweetened condensed milk all over the top. Sprinkle on the chopped cashews. Swoon! I have been craving these bars and your recipe sounds great! Any ideas for swapping out the peanuts for something else? Also, thanks for sharing on Foodie Friends Friday!
