I have a confession: sometimes, when I am in the mood for baked treats, I go buy the “boxed” versions of them. You know – those cheesecakes in a box, or Reese’s brownies, or lemon bars? Yep. It happens. They still taste good – just not quite as good as the “from scratch” versions. One of my guilty pleasures was always the Magic Cookie Bars. Suddenly, a few months ago, to my dismay – I stopped finding the “all-in-one” box of ingredients for them! I have been craving them ever since. I found a recipe for them, and added a few of my own favorite things to make the perfect Seven Layer Magic Cookie Bars. And they are definitely better than the box version! 🙂
Seven Layer Magic Cookie Bars:
1/2 cup margarine, melted
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 cup chopped walnuts (I like mine finely chopped)
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups shredded coconut
1 14-oz can of sweetened condensed milk
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Pour melted margarine into a 13×9 inch baking pan. Spread graham cracker crumbs evenly across the pan. Add your layer of chopped walnuts, then milk chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, and white chocolate chips. Then pour condensed milk covering entirely. Top with coconut. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the top is a light golden brown.
