Jackson Hole Bed and Breakfast Recipes- Five Layer Bars

“What time do the afternoon cookies come out of the oven?” This is a common questions asked by our guests at Inn on the Creek, a Jackson Hole Bed and Breakfast. We typically hear this question right after their hearty breakfast each morning. Like every good traveler, our guests have their mind on their next meal. Well, we answer with an enthusiastic, “Cookies come out of the oven 4 PM sharp!”. It is a pleasure to share with you the 4 PM cookie our guests came home to today.  Today’s 4 PM cookie is actually not even a cookie, but we think you will enjoy them just the same…

Say “hello” to the Five Layer Bar….

Five Layer Bar 


  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup butterscotch morsels (we used butterfinger crumbles!)
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate morsels
  • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.


  1. Remove graham cracker crumbs from jar. Combine graham cracker crumbs and melted butter. Press into bottom of a 9 by 13-inch baking dish.
  2. Sprinkle the pecans, butterscotch morels, shredded coconut and chocolate morels over graham cracker crumb mixture.
  3. Pour sweetened condensed milk over the layers.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes. Allow to cool and cut into bars.

Still warm, gooey and crunchie!

For a fun and delicious gift idea, layer the ingredients in a decorative jar, layer pecans, butterscotch morsels, coconut, and chocolate morsels. Spoon graham cracker crumbs into a small plastic or cellophane bag and place on top of the layers. You can add fabric to the condensed milk or just leave it as something additional your recipient will need to grab at the grocery store. Cover the jar with a piece of holiday fabric then add a colorful ribbon or twine. Great for hostess gifts as well.  My daughter and I used to make these all the time when she was younger. What a wonderful memory, until it became too expensive to mail them all back east!

Be sure when you come out to Jackson Hole to visit us you bring your sweet tooth.

Thank you Paula Deen for this great recipe idea!
