Magic Bars Recipe


  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 1/3 cup coconut
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts (I used pecans)


Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix the graham cracker crumbs and butter together and pat into bottom of a 9x11 pan. Pour the sweetened condensed milk evenly over the graham cracker layer. Sprinkle the coconut, chocolate chips, and nuts evenly over the milk and graham cracker layers. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until brown.
