How to Make Magic Bars

I love magic bars. They are the perfect treat on a fall cool day with a cup of hazelnut hot chocolate. It starts with a layer of graham cracker crust, shredded coconut, chopped walnuts, and dark and milk chocolate, and more coconut. This version is a very easy one. I was surprised how easy they were to make. Too easy. So easy you could make this often, like 2 times in one I share of course....

Ingredients & Supplies

2 cups crushed graham crackers
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped organic walnuts
1-1 1/2 cups shredded coconut
1 can organic sweetened condensed milk, 14 ounces
1 Baking Dish, I use Rachel Ray's Non-stick Pan


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9x13 baking pan with parchment paper.

Combine graham cracker crumbs and melted butter until evenly moistened.

Press crumb mixture into bottom of prepared pan to form the crust.

 Layer half of the chocolate chips and the walnuts.

And then add the coconut evenly over entire pan and add the rest of the chocolate chips.

Pour the entire sweetened condensed milk can over. You can do this two ways. You can wait to pour the condensed milk at the end or you can pour it right over the crust and then add the toppings after and press the toppings on top. They both are equally delicious, but the texture changes just a tad.

Bake for 28 minutes at 350 degrees.

Remove from oven and let cool completely before cutting into bars and enjoy!

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoy these as much as I have this week....twice!

I made these magic bars this weekend and they were chewy and crunchy at the same time. So good.
