This old favorite has been around for ages and it never disappoints. Another Eagle Brand original, so sweet and gooey. It just doesn’t get any easier than this.
Magic Cookie Bars
½ cup butter
1 ½ cups graham cracker crumbs
1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
1 6 oz package semi sweet chocolate morsels
1 3 ½ oz can flaked coconut (1 1/3 cups)
1 cup chopped nuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees (325 for glass dish)
Note: Original recipe calls for a 13 x 9” baking pan, but I used an 11 x 7 nonstick rectangular tart pan with a removable bottom, which made removing and cutting a breeze. If using glass or a pan that is not non stick, you’ll want to spray with non-stick cooking spray. For easier removal, line the pan with foil or parchment, extending over the edges of the pan. Lift out of pan when cooled and cut.
Melt butter and mix with graham cracker crumbs in a medium size bowl. Press into bottom of 13x 9 pan or into bottom an up sides if using a smaller pan. Pour condensed milk evenly over crumbs. Layer semi-sweet morsels, nuts and coconut; press down firmly.
Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool thoroughly before cutting. Store at room temperature for up to 3 days – if they last that long!
