Magic Cookie Bars

I hope you are reading today, Christina....this is for you! :> )

While I was growing up, my grandmother, Foxy, used to make these treats for us when we would come over to visit. And oh, what a "treat" they are. Packed full of ooey, gooey, OMGoodness!

I have not made these bars for quite some time, but after posting about Foxy and mentioning her cookie bars the other day, I now have to make these for myself family.

Ok, now onto the food recipe!

Servings: Makes 2 to 3 dozen bars
Serving Size: 1/36 of a recipe
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes

INGREDIENTS:
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, melted
1 (14-ounce) can EAGLE BRAND® Sweetened Condensed Milk (NOT evaporated milk)
2 cups (12 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/3 cups flaked coconut
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350°F (325°F for glass dish). In small bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs and butter; mix well. Press crumb mixture firmly on bottom of 13X9-inch baking pan. Pour EAGLE BRAND® evenly over crumb mixture. Layer evenly with remaining ingredients; press down firmly with fork. Bake 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool. Cut into bars or diamonds. Store leftovers covered at room temperature.

Recipe Variations: Substitute chocolate chips or nuts with: candy coated pieces, dried cranberries, raisins, mini marshmallows or butterscotch chips.

I hope you like these...WE DO!

Blessings~

This recipe is very easy to make, Hope. My girls made this when they were younger.

Seee, I don't really like to MAKE the food, I just like to EAT the food. Thus my one comment that Hope made fun of on Five Moms & A Blog today. =0)

Those sure do look yummy!!! You should leave Christina a comment and tell her you left her a little something on your blog. =0)

Thanks for leaving the comment about these. I will have to give them a try. Except Larry doesn't like coconut so I will have to leave that out.
God Bless,
Christina

These are one of my absolute favorite cookies! I love every ingredient in them. I don't make them, but when I see them at a function I make a Bee Line for them.
