Magic Cookie Bars Recipe


Magic Cookie Bars

To make these yummy gooey chewy cookie bars you will need... 

1/2 cup butter, melted
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 can  Sweetened Condensed Milk (14 ounce)
1 cup semisweet chocolate morsels
3/4 cup flaked coconut
2 cup chopped nuts ( I used almonds , walnuts and cashews) 

Most magic bar recipes uses more choc morsels and less nuts but I used more nuts and less choc morsels. You can increase or decrease the quantity of nuts, choc morsels and flaked coconut.

Preheat oven at 350 F and follow these steps.

Step 1: Mix melted butter and graham cracker crumbs. Cover one 9x13 baking pan with foil. Spray it with cooking spray and spread the graham cracker mix on tray, press it down evenly with fork.


Step 2: layer condensed milk evenly...


Step 3: layer chopped nuts and chocolate chips. I have a mix of Almonds, walnuts and cashews.


Step 4: sprinkle coconut evenly and top it of with few chocolate chips. press it gently down with fork.


Step 5: Bake at 350 F for approx 20 mins or until the ages starts to turn brown.


Step 6: let it cool and cut it to make small pieces. Enjoy your gooey chewy yummy magic bars. for variation you can top it with m & m also.


These taste so yummy, I could eat it all day. Lots of nuts makes me feel less guilty about it :) my son loves it too and it is one of those recipes which kids can also help it.
