Magic Bars

Learn how to make these Magic Bars!



1 ½ Cups Marie biscuits or graham crackers

½ Cup butter, melted

1 Cup chocolate chips

1 Cup walnuts, chopped

1 ½ Cup dried or flaked coconut

1 can sweetened condensed milk




Grease a 9×13 baking pan with butter or cooking spray.  Place the biscuits inside a sealed plastic bag and crush into crumbs using a rolling pin.

Transfer into baking pan and stir in the melted butter.  Press the crumbly mixture to form a cookie base.


Sprinkle the chocolate chips and chopped nuts in an even layer followed by the dried coconut.  Then pour the sweetened condensed milk evenly over the whole tray.

Bake at 170 Degrees Celcius for about 20-25 25 minutes.  Remove from oven and cut into squares while still warm and soft.  The bars will harden as they cool.
