Magic cookie bars

December 11, 2011

Magic cookie bars are an old-fashioned favorite. They’re so rich and delicious, and even better, they’re easy! Make them your own by using dark chocolate instead of semi-sweet chocolate chips, or add peanut butter or butterscotch chips to the mix!

1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (I like to use chocolate graham crackers!)
14-oz. can sweetened condensed milk
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1-1/3 cups flaked coconut
1 cup chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans are good in these bars)

Combine graham cracker crumbs and melted butter or margarine. Press into the bottom of a greased 13×9″ baking pan. Pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over the crumb base. Spread chocolate chips, coconut, and nuts evenly in layers over the top. Press down firmly with a fork or spatula.

Bake at 350 degrees F. (or 325 if using a glass dish) for 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely, then cut into bars. Enjoy!
