My husband started his first day of Residency a little bit ago.
I made these M&M Magic Cookie Bars to hopefully calm his nerves. He was actually so nervous he couldn’t even eat one.
But don’t worry, once he got home he ate about 5 of them (they were that good.) Hope you love them as much as we do.
We took our Magic Cookie bars and gave them a delicious and fun twist. We are big M&M lovers at our house (okay really just anything that has chocolate, we will devour).
But these were a huge hit. Did I hide the last three from my kids so I could eat them myself? Why yes. Yes I did.

what could i use instead of graham cracker, for the crust?
I am a sucker for a good graham cracker crust. I like my crust thick, and these bars have a good size crust.
However, if you don’t have any graham crackers on hand, or are looking to switch things up, here are a few replacements I recommend:
- Vanilla Wafers
- Vanilla Oreo’s (we recommend removing the frosting, but you could keep it in. They just won’t set up as well).
- Golden Graham Cereal
- Graham Sticks
- Teddy Graham or Cupcake flavored Gold Fish
- Frosted Cheerios
- Biscoff Cookies
Really any sweet vanilla cracker or cookie would work for this recipe.
Add a little peanut butter flavor:
I love chocolate and peanut butter. I you are looking to switch things up, here is what I recommend:
- add 1/3 cup creamy (or chunky) peanut butter to the crust batter.
- add peanut butter chips.
- add Reese’s Pieces instead of M & M’s (or do both. I won’t judge).
- add Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup pieces to the batter.
You could also do a combination of it all. If you don’t like coconut with peanut butter, you could easily replace your coconut with the peanut buttery goods.
