Magic Bars or Seven Layer Bars whichever you want to call these little squares of utter most deliciousness. They are super easy to make even a fifteen year old non cook can make them to to take to her last day of school.
Yes, my daughter volunteered to bring these magic bars to her last class of the school year, thinking I would make them for her. Uh,no. Mom will happily supervise.
Layers of graham cracker, chocolate morsels, nuts, coconut and sweetened condensed milk. That’s the ingredients along with a stick of melted butter. Magic, yes. Lots of calories, I’m sure. But hey, it’s the end of the school year.
I’ve been making these Magic Bars for years after being introduced to them by a friend. You can’t buy these anywhere pre made. They must be made from scratch. The ingredients must be layered on in the order given for a reason. Chocolate morsels must be the first layer, then nuts. Coconut tops these two layers to hold everything together. Then sweetened condensed milk glues it all into one bar.
I suppose they were originally called seven layer bars due to additional types of chips added like butterscotch. I only use chocolate though. I am a morsel purist.
Ready for school. Oh, these Magic Bars were so hard to let go. Dear daughter did well. Yummy. We did end up adding more chocolate morsels to the top layer. Couldn’t resist the call of extra chocolate.
What end of the school years treats do you make?
