Gluten Free, Nut Free Hello Dolly Bars

Hello Dolly Bars are so easy to make gluten free and nut free! The perfect crowd pleasing dessert!
This is a fun dessert. It’s so easy to make. Almost too easy! (For my waistline I mean). I actually made this batch without even dirtying a bowl. I combined the cookie crumbs and the butter in a freezer Ziplock bag. After I had squeezed it out into the baking pan, I just sprinkled the chocolate chips and coconut on top and poured on the sweetened condensed milk and baked it. I made the crumbs in a personal sized blender, but you could easily make them just by crumbling cookies with your hands or rolling a bag full of cookies with a clean rolling pin. I used Kinnikinnick S’moreables for my crumbs because they’re both gluten and nut free.
This would actually make a neat gift for a gluten free friend if you packaged up the ingredients inside a parchment lined baking pan. It would also be a fun pre-assembled baking activity for visiting grandkids.
