Magic Cookie Bars

Simple and Delicious.

I hope everybody enjoyed the Holidays.  I know I enjoyed my nice long vacation from work and spending quality time with friends and family.  You have may have noticed a little lull in the blog, but don't work I am back for 2012 with more recipes to share.  It seems everybody gets a little baked out after the holidays and I am also one of those people.  Yesterday was my first day baking since New Years and all I made for NYE was a batch of my famous chocolate chip cookies.  Anyway, I have been saving this recipe for you from before Christmas.  One of my friends brought these too my cookie exchange party back in December and they were a hit.  If you have never made these bars, you should really give them a try.  They are incredibly easy to make and truly delicious!

So I have a question for you.  What types of recipes would you like to see in 2012?  Perhaps you would like to see more of something, or perhaps there is something you have never seen me post.  Let me know and I will add it to my list!

Magic Cookie Bars
recipe from Eagle Brand

1/2 cup butter, melted
1 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 (14 ounce) can Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk
2 cups semisweet chocolate chops
1 1/3 cups flaked coconut
1 cup chopped nuts

Preheat over to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Coat a 9x13 baking pan with no-stick cooking spray.

Combine the graham cracker crumbs and butter. Press into bottom of prepared pan.  Pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over crumb mixture.  Layer evening with chocolate chips, coconut, and nuts.  Press firmly down with a fork.  Bake 25 minutes or until lightly browned.  Cur into bars or diamonds.  Store covered at room temperature.


  1. I've made these for years as 7 layer bars ....basically the same but adding a layer of butterscotch chips after the chocolate...and not drizzling the condensed milk until all the layers are there -- it acts as more of a binder.....

  2. I love to make cookie bars it's seem like fun
    To me

  3. I just baked these for a baking exchange and they turned out soggy..too bad

  4. These turned out super gooey and I wasn't able to cut them into pieces. Whole pan wasted

  5. Turned out great for me - every time!

  6. I love these! But I agree with the other commenter about adding butterscotch chips and then putting the condensed milk on top as the last step. It them seeps down and helps everything stick without being too concentrated at the bottom!

  7. I have always had excellent luck with these until I read the comments and put the condensed milk on top. They tasted okay but looked horrible. I am trying them again today exactly the way the recipe reads.
