Carrot Cake Magic Bars

You can find recipes just about every flavor of magic bars you can think of.  Same with M&M's.  Back at Easter Walmart had the carrot cake M&M's.  I found recipes last year using the M&M's but couldn't find them.  This year I found the M&M's but had a hard time find the recipe again. If you like carrot cake I think you will like this nice twist.
The base of these bars is a carrot cake mix.
Start with the cake mix in a bowl.
Add 1 egg and one stick of softened butter.
Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla.
Mix well.  You might want to use a pastry cutter because the mixer made a mess on the counter.  Cake mix went flying.
Spread it out in the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish that has been coated with non stick spray.
Spread  a 1/2 cup, give or take, of pineapple preserves on top of the cake mix.
Sprinkle 1 cup shredded coconut on top of the preserves.
Rough chop 1/2 cup walnuts
Sprinkle on top
Add one can of sweetened condensed milk.
Make sure it is distributed evenly.
This is what the carrot cake M&M's look like.  You will have to wait until next year to find them again.
Sprinkle about 1 cup on top. Place in a preheated 350 oven and bake for 35 minutes.
Fresh from the oven.  Let them sit until they are cooled completely before cutting.  They really cut better if you let them sit overnight.
