Monday Magic

This is the last installment of Fall Into Flavor with Linda over at 2nd Cup of Coffee. This recipe is magical because Builderman loves it and it's easy peasy. You don’t touch a mixing bowl, chopping knife or even a spoon! His favorite dinner is homemade Chicken Pot Pie and that’s not so easy, trust me.

I got this recipe from a little paperback recipe book I ordered years ago called Best Recipes from the Backs of Boxes, Bottles, Cans & Jars. Probably not impressive to Rachel Rey but it works for me and everyone loves it. If you need to make your Monday Magical, here’s your answer. Be sure to come back tomorrow to participate in the first ever installment of Squall Line!

Magic Cookie Bars

½ cup butter or margarine (1 stick)
1 ½ cups graham cracker crumbs
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 6-ounce semi-sweet chocolate morsels (1 cup)
1 3-ounce can flaked coconut (1 cup)
1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a 13 x 9 inch baking pan, melt butter. Crush graham crackers into crumbs and sprinkle crumbs over butter. Pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over crumbs. Top evenly with chocolate morsels, coconut and nuts; press down gently. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool thoroughly before cutting.

These are a standard in our house, but I never tried the coconut...hmm...Mmmmmmmm....gotta try this one. How come MY recipe on my blog was right next to a google ad about fat and flat stomachs?!? Oh, the shame!

This I may have to test bake in the next couple of days. With all the family coming in for Thanksgiving, Magic Cookie Bars looks like a winner on the buffet table! Thanks for sharing it.
