Lately I’ve been so busy! Between work, tennis games and cocktail parties I’m always looking for a quick and easy dessert to throw together last minute. Normally any bar recipe is quick and you can throw it in the oven and leave it alone – who doesn’t love doing that? These Magic Bars are layers of good-ness, 5 Layers in fact! Graham cracker, condensed milk, chocolate, coconut and nuts are layered on top of one another to make a bar that is truly “magical”! 

Whether you need to throw together a last minute dessert, need a little comfort after a stressful day, or a dessert to freeze and store for later, these bars are for you. 


Ingredients:
 1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
14 oz can Sweetened Condensed Milk
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 1/3 cups flaked coconut
1 cup chopped nuts 

Directions:

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 13 x 9 inch baking ban with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Combine graham cracker crumbs and butter and mix with hands. Press into the bottom of prepared pan. Pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over crumb mixture. Layer with chocolate, then coconut then nuts. Press down firmly. 
  3. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until browned. Allow to cool and cut into bars. I suggest storing these covered and at room temperature.
