These 7 layer bars bake up to taste like Magic!
I have heard of the infamous Ice Storm in 1998 where so many lost their power for three weeks.
So when we were welcomed by this ice storm this week, we were all in shock to lose power. No heat, no electricity, not so much a welcome for Christmas.
This has been the first time that I have been on the internet in 5 days, so I am excited to share a recipe with you, I started to bake these right when the power came back on, or else they would have gone on the BBQ Grill!
That is a whole other blog!
These really are named appropriately, they are magic.
Everyone kept going back for second and third helpings.
A layer of graham cracker crumbs, a layer of coconut, a layer of chocolate chips, a layer of nuts, so easy! This bar freezes well too!
- 7-Layer Magic Cookie Bars: Substitute 1 cup (6-ounces) butterscotch flavored chips* for 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips and proceed as directed above.
