Blueberry Magic Cookie Bars

I have made the magic cookie bar recipe many times since the girls have been growing up as we are all lovers of coconut, chocolate and sweetened condensed milk.  Keebler had a version with raspberry jam and I knew I had to try it.  Since we are on a blueberry kick this month I figured I would substitute the raspberry for blueberry.  I loved the addition of the sweet fruit flavor but my husband did not.  I am sure raspberry and blackberry would be just as delicious.

2 cups graham crackers crumbs (I used Keebler)
1 stick unsalted butter, melted
1/4 cup sugar
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
3 cups sweetened flaked coconut
1-1/2 cup blueberry jam
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 tbsp vegetable oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a small bowl combine graham crackers crumbs and sugar.  Add melted butter and stir until combined. Press into bottom of a 13 x 9 pan.  Sprinkle coconut over the top of the crust and drizzle the sweetened condensed milk evenly over the top.  Bake for 20-24 minutes until coconut is browned.

Cool completely or freeze for a 1/2 hour or so if time is short.  Spread the preserves over the coconut and sprinkle with pecans.

Melt chocolate chips in microwave with oil added for 2 minutes on low.  Stir chips until melted.  Drizzle chocolate over pecans while it is still soft and smooth.  Cool on counter or in refrigerator before cutting into bars.
