Magic Bars

This is one of my all-time favorite recipes.  Probably one of the first recipes I became fond of back in high school – It’s one of those ones I go back to over and over again.  This is partly because it’s delicious (how could you go wrong with coconut, chocolate, and nuts?) and partially because of how easy it is.  I’m sure you’ve had these before – you can find it on the side of any Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk can, but they’re so good, I figured it was worth the share :)

1 cup chopped nuts

1 cup peantubutter chips

1 cup butterscotch chips

heck you could even put some crasins in….. :D


1) Preheat oven to 350F , place stick of butter in 13X9 baking pan, and allow to melt in oven, while it’s pre-heating.

2)  Meanwhile, crush the package of grahm crackers into crumbs.  When butter is melted, dump gram crack crumbs into baking pan, and mix well with fork, patting it down to create the base of the crust.

3)  Pour can of sweetened condensed milk over the pan, covering it evenly.

4)  Sprinkle with coconut and other delicious things and pat down with fork.

5)  Bake for 20-25 until golden brown, cool completely, cut into bars and enjoy :)
