Magic Bars

These bars may actually be magic. Also known as dream bars or seven-layer bars, they are extremely easy to make and DELICIOUS. I had been craving them for months, and turns out that they are very hard to find in New York City. Thus, I had to take matters into my own hands. These are best straight out of the oven, when the chocolate and butterscotch are all melted together, but they keep in the fridge for a few days as well.

Magic Bars (adapted from

1/2 cup butter, melted
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 (14 oz) can of sweetened condensed milk
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips
1 1/3 cups flaked coconut
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 13x9-inch baking pan with butter. Combine graham cracker crumbs and butter. Press into bottom of prepared pan. Pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over crumb mixture. Layer evenly with chocolate chips, coconut and nuts. Press down firmly with a fork. Bake for 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool. Cut into bars or diamonds. Store covered at room temperature.
