One of the families I work for are always making these yummy easy treats. Whether it's for a bake sale, birthday, or entertaining event at the apartment, they always make these. Starbuck's used to sell a version of these bars and they were so delicious, I kinda miss them. I bet they got rid of them when they had to start posting the calorie counts on everything, these are not low calorie treats by any means. SO BEWARE because they are kind of addicting. The best part about the recipe is that you probably have most of the ingredients on hand, except maybe the sweetened condensed milk. But if you like the recipe maybe you could stock up with a few cans that way the next time you feel like making it you have all the ingredients on hand!
Magic Cookie Bars
(makes about 16 small squares)
1 1/2 cups of graham crackers crumbs
1 stick unsalted butter, melted
1 (14 oz) can of sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 cups shredded coconut
1 cup mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a baking dish. I used a 9x9 pan. Mix melted butter and graham cracker crumbs together in a bowl. Press crumb mixture into the bottom of the pan in an even layer. Next, pour the condensed milk over the graham crumbs. Then, sprinkle coconut over the milk. Now sprinkle chips all over the top. Place in the oven and bake for about 30 minutes until golden brown. Let cool completely, you can even place the pan in the fridge for a while. Cut into squares and enjoy!!
I bet this would be really great to make in a mini-muffin or regular muffin tin, but it would require a little more work on your part because of the layering.
