*For this deadly concoction, store-bought cookie dough is also totally fine. Just smoosh it all out flat and press into baking dish and skip the cookie dough instructions below. But just so you know, these cookies are delicious so you probably wanna make them.

Preheat oven to 350 F. Coat 9x13 pan with nonstick cooking spray and set aside. 

Melt butter in saucepan; add brown sugar and mix well. Remove from heat and cool about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, whisk together dry ingredients and set aside. 

Pour butter mixture and vanilla in mixing bowl. On low speed, add eggs one at a time, incorporating well between each addition. Add flour mixture in 2-3 additions. Mix well. Stir in chocolate chips and spread batter evenly in baking dish. 

Bake crust about 10 minutes and remove from oven. Evenly sprinkle chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, toffee bits and coconut over top. Drizzle sweetened condensed milk over everything. Bake 16-20 minutes until lightly browned. Allow to cool completely before cutting...or dig in with a spoon right away!
