Seven Layer Magic Cookie Bars


These are an old favorite – easy as can be but so good and so rich! They have to be saved for special occasions.
1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
½ cup butter, melted
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup butterscotch-flavored chips (I usually leave these out)
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1-1/3 cups coconut
1 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together graham cracker crumbs and butter and press into the bottom of a 9 x 13-inch pan. Pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over crumb mixture. Layer evenly with remaining ingredients. Bake 25 to 30 minutes – until lightly browned. Cut into bars when cool. Store in the refrigerator and take out a few minutes early to soften before serving.

    • This is one of the hardest ingredients to substitute. In these bars, I sometimes use chocolate sauce instead it and then refrigerate the bars. I also use cream of coconut, because it is thick like the milk, but gives more of a coconut flavor. I have tried to boil down brown sugar with soymilk and vanilla extract but it has not worked as well. Use a combination of the cream of coconut and chocoate sauce and they will be great.
