Each holiday season my Nan from Newfoundland would send us a parcel in the mail filled with different squares, cookies, and treats. It was so awesome. There were so many varieties and goodies to choose from. These Five Star Bars were always one of my favourites!

This is a very easy recipe to make. Only 8 ingredients! Condensed milk, coconut, Quaker® Large Flake Oats, graham crackers, vanilla, melted butter, and chocolate. Mix everything together, pop it into a brownie pan, toss in the oven, then allow the warm squares to melt the chocolate. So easy and so incredibly tasty.
