KAYE'S JEROME BARS
UPDATE: (5/1/12) Kaye's son, Kyle, and I hooked up on facebook. He told me that Kaye died in 2003 from melanoma skin cancer. She was in her early 50's. I cried when I read his message. This recipe is now more special than ever.

7 ozcoconut, flaked
1 1/2 cpecans or walnuts, chopped

How to Make KAYE'S JEROME BARS
- BARS: Bring to a boil the butter, sugar, evaporated milk & egg. Remove from heat & add the coconut, nuts and 1 cup of graham cracker crumbs.
- Spread 1/2 box of whole graham crackers in shallow pan and pour the boiled mixture on top. Place the remaining whole graham crackers over that then frost & cut.
- FROSTING: Melt butter, then gradually add powdered sugar & mix well. Add the milk & vanilla & mix to a spreading consistency. You may need to add more milk to achieve that consistency.
- KEEP REFRIGERATED.
These are sweet so you can't eat a belly full.
