Festive Fruit Bars

6 Tablespoons butter
1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 cup shredded coconut
2 cups cut up mixed candied fruit
1 cup chopped dates
1 cup pecans, chopped
1 can sweetened condensed milk

Preheat oven to 350ºF.

Melt butter and pour into the bottom of a 9” x 12” pan. (A 9” x 13” pan is too big; I used a 10” x 10”.) Sprinkle crumbs evenly over butter. Pat down. Sprinkle coconut over crumbs. Sprinkle mixed fruit, dates, and nuts evenly over coconut. Press mixture down lightly to level in pan. Pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over the top. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool in pan before cutting.
