Ingredients:

For the Graham Cracker Crust:

  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

For the Magic Cookie Bars:

  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded coconut
  • 1 cup chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans work well)

Instructions:

Creating the Graham Cracker Crust:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 13×9-inch baking pan.
  2. In a bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and granulated sugar. Mix until well combined.
  3. Press the mixture firmly into the bottom of the prepared baking pan to create an even crust.
  4. Bake the crust in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes or until it’s lightly golden. Remove from the oven and let it cool slightly.

Assembling the Magic Cookie Bars:

  1. Evenly sprinkle chocolate chips over the graham cracker crust.
  2. Next, distribute shredded coconut over the chocolate chips.
  3. Sprinkle chopped nuts over the coconut layer.
  4. Pour the sweetened condensed milk evenly over the entire mixture.
  5. Press down lightly on the layers with a fork or spatula to ensure the sweetened condensed milk binds everything together.

Baking the Magic Cookie Bars:

  1. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
  2. Remove from the oven and let the bars cool completely before cutting into squares.

Cooking Notes:

  • Ensure the graham cracker crust is firmly packed to provide a solid base for the layers.
  • Experiment with different types of chocolate chips or add a mix of white and dark chocolate for a diverse flavor profile.
  • Toast the nuts before adding them to enhance their flavor.

Variations:

Fruity Bliss Magic Bars: Add a layer of dried fruits such as cranberries or chopped dried apricots for a sweet and tangy twist.

S’mores Infusion Magic Bars: Incorporate crushed graham crackers into the layers for a s’mores-inspired magic bar.

Peanut Butter Paradise Magic Bars: Swirl creamy peanut butter into the sweetened condensed milk for a delightful peanut buttery addition.

Keto and Low-Carb Versions:

Keto Magic Cookie Bars:

  • Create a crust using almond flour instead of graham cracker crumbs.
  • Use a sugar substitute in place of granulated sugar in the crust.
  • Choose sugar-free chocolate chips and unsweetened shredded coconut to keep the carb count low.

Low-Carb Nutty Delight:

  • Reduce the amount of shredded coconut and increase the quantity of nuts for a lower-carb version.
  • Opt for a low-carb sweetened condensed milk substitute or make your own using heavy cream and a sugar substitute.
  • Experiment with low-carb nuts such as almonds or macadamias.
