Magic Cookie Bars!

Our church has a group of people that get together on Tuesday nights for a prayer meeting. We come together and talk about what's going on in our lives and we ask for prayer request and pray over the list we have. We used to alternate and make dinner for everyone but the group got so big, which is great, and now we just make dessert. Tonight I made magic cookie bars for the group tonight. You can find the recipe below. I've made these so many times before and they are such a hit. They're also quick and easy.

Magic Cookie Bars

1 can of sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 cups of your choice of nuts
2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup of shredded coconut
1/2 cup-1 stick of butter
1 cup of graham crackers(crumbled, I used my new food processor that my husband bought me for our One year wedding anniversary, this past Sunday!)

This thing has a HEMI in it ;)

Preheat your oven to 350*, 325* if you're using a glass pan.
Melt your stick of butter.
Crumbled the graham crackers, measure out 1 cup and pour them over the butter and spread them, to cover the bottom of the pan.
Then pour the sweetened condensed milk over the top of the graham cracker/butter mixture.
Next, pour the chocolate chips, coconut and nut of your choice over the top.
Last bake for 20-30 minutes depending on your oven. Mine was about 20 minutes.

** I also added peanut butter chips to mine and they were delish.**


  1. Looks like a great recipe :)

    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! To answer your question about what to dip into the pumpkin dip, I typically dip pretzels and gingersnaps which taste delicious. Loads of options here, bananas are yummy, I'm sure marshmallows, cake, vanilla and chocolate cookies would be very good too :) Glad you liked the recipe.
