These 7 Layer Magic Bars are a very special treat that take just 15 minutes to throw together. You won’t be disappointed!


Units Scale

1 1/2 c graham cracker crumbs (In SA I used crushed tennis biscuits.)

1 stick butter (4 oz or 1/2 c)

1 can condensed milk

8 oz chocolate chips or one big chopped chocolate bar

1 c chopped walnuts or pecans but any kind works

1 1/3 c shredded coconut


Preheat oven to 350. Place butter in 13×9 pan. Place in oven and let butter melt. This takes 5-10 minutes. Just don’t let it burn.

Make sure butter is evenly distributed across bottom of pan.

Sprinkle crumbs evenly over top of butter.

Use your fingers or a knife to pat down evenly to form a good crust.

Now open your can of condensed milk and pour evenly over crumbs. You may need a small spatula to gently spread it but it doesn’t have to be perfect.

Sprinkle the graham cracker crumb mixture with the chips or chopped chocolate, nuts, and last but not least, the coconut.

Cook about 25 minutes until it looks a bit golden around the edges.

These need to cool before cutting. I usually cool them in the refrigerator so I can eat them faster. But there is no need to store them in the fridge. They keep just fine in an airtight container on the counter.

Cut into bars. Now enjoy the magic. You won’t be able to stop at one. So tell me-myth or reality?
