Stir Me Nots

I know this sounds like an odd name for a dessert, but there is a reason for it! Stir Me Nots are aptly named because there is no stirring involved whatsoever. My mom has made this for as long as I can remember and it’s one of her signature desserts. It’s my childhood. They also could not have been easier to make. All of the ingredients were just layered in my pan and baked! I’ve also included a quick video to show just how easy this recipe is.

The Stir Me Nots ingredients all laid out and ready to layer!
Stir Me Nots only need 7 ingredients! I used melted butter, graham cracker crumbs, toffee, chocolate chips, coconut, chopped walnuts and sweetened condensed milk.
The tray of Stir Me Nots put together and ready to bake.
Those ingredients were just layered in the pan! It could not have been easier to assemble the stir me nots.
The Stir Me Nots baked and golden, fresh out of the oven.
I let the stir me nots bake for 30 minutes to let everything meld together and become golden. Then I let them cool a bit and they were ready! I cut them into squares and enjoyed a childhood favorite.

Oh my goodness, there’s a reason that these babies always were gone immediately when my mom made them. The layers just worked together so well! The chocolate and toffee became all melty and glorious, with the crunchy walnuts and coconut giving amazing texture. Making these stir me nots was so much fun and brought back so many memories. Enjoy! xoxo

  • 1 stick butter melted
  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 whole toffee bars about 3 1/2 ounces each, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk 14 ounce size
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 and get out a 9 x 13 baking dish. Pour the melted butter in to coat the bottom of the pan. Even distribute the graham cracker crumbs on top of the butter in an even layer, followed by the toffee bits, chocolate chips, coconut and the walnuts last. Pat the layers down to make sure they are compact and even. Pour the sweetened condensed milk all over the layers and let it seep in.
  2. That's all there is to assembling the stir me nots! Bake them for 30 minutes, until golden and set. Take them out and let them cool for at least 10 minutes. Then cut them into squares and serve!

  1. Leigh – Looks so good, but have family members who are lactose intolerant. Is there a substitution I can make for the sweetened condensed milk?

    1. Excellent point. Cream of coconut would be the perfect substitution here, especially since it will bring out the coconut flavor that is already there. Make sure it is cream of coconut though, and not coconut cream which is very different.
