I found this recipe in one of my family’s many cook books. These are delicious and so easy to make! CHEMISTRY INFORMATION:In addition to the pure substances and mixtures shown below,the bars when they are done are in layers, making them a heterogenous mixture. Another heterogeneous mixture is the butter once it is melted , you can see the separation. You can kind of see different shades of yellow that allow you to see the different materials. All the ingredients individually in the actual bars are homogeneous mixtures. The only pure substance in this recipe is the water you use to wash your hands before you start. Physical changes that happen in this recipe are the bars warming up in oven, and the chocolate chips melting. Chemical changes that occur are the coconut browning up, and the graham cracker crust browning and getting crunchy.
