We've Got Magic to Do

Things always get super busy around the holidays. There are trees to trim, presents to buy, old friends to connect with, and holiday parties to attend. This directly interferes with bad weather, frigid temperatures, and cold and flu season! All of these things combined have made me less crafty and more busy, so I hope you'll forgive this repeated post while I try to catch my crafty breath!

Magic cookie bars are a staple at our house around the holidays. They are so fun and easy to make. They don't even dirty a spoon! Alex doesn't like nuts, so I decided to kick these up a notch with more candy! They were sweet as can be, but super delicious!

Magic Cookie Bars (inspired by Eagle Brand Recipes)
Makes 2 dozen bars
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) of butter
  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 six oz package of chocolate chips
  • 1 six oz package of white chocolate chips
  • 1 six oz package of butterscotch chip
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. In a small sauce pan, melt butter
  3. Pour butter evenly into a 13x9 baking dish so that it coats the bottom of the dish
  4. Layer remaining ingredients evenly on top of the butter
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until bottom is golden brown
  6. Let cool before cutting into squares
