Magic Cookie Bars

This is one of the most decadently sweet bar cookie recipes ever. I make them in a 9 X 13-inch pan for thin multi-layered bar cookie. If you prefer thicker bars, a 9 X 9-inch pan works well. You will just need to bake them for about 10 minutes longer when using the 9-inch square pan. To keep things super easy and avoid unnecessary clean-up, melt the butter right in the baking pan.
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups coconut (try unsweetened dessicated coconut for a less sweet option)
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups butterscotch chips (optional)
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts or pecans
  • 1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
  2. In a 9x13-inch baking pan mix butter and graham cracker crumbs and press evenly to cover the bottom of the pan.
  3. Sprinkle, in order: chocolate chips, coconut, butterscotch chips, and then the nuts over the crumb base.
  4. Drizzle condensed milk over the top.
  5. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes.
  6. Cool completely on a wire rack and cut into bars. Because these magic seven layer bars are so sweet, I prefer to cut them into little bite-sized bars.
