    I m sure that mixing all of the ingredients together and pouring over the crust would make a delicious cookie bar, but it won t be the classic layered bar that this recipe creates. Pouring the condensed milk over the top versus pouring it over the crust and gently pushing the layers into it, isn t the same as mixing everything together. The only thing that pouring the condensed milk over the top does is to gently coat the layers, but the layers are still intact, not mixed together. Has anyone ever tried graham cracker crust first and than add all of the other ingredients pre-mixed? If some people pour the condensed milk on top at the end why not just mix it in with the nuts, coconut, and chips and than pour it on top of the crust?
