sweet treats

we (me & ellie the puppy) are working on a very fun holiday project at my house today, which i promise to share in a few days, and i thought a holiday project deserved some holiday treats!

yummy magic bars!
here's the recipe...
-1/2 cup butter
-1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
-14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk
-2 cups chocolate chips
-1 1/3 cups coconut
-1 cup chopped nuts

preheat oven to 350 (or 325 for a glass dish) and coat a 13x9 pan with cooking spray. combine cracker crumbs & butter and press into bottom of pan. pour condensed milk over crumb mixture. then top with chips, coconut and nuts. press down firmly with a fork and bake 25 minutes or until toasty brown. cool & enjoy!

and in case you're wondering why my bars look a little different, well that's another reason these are so great! i don't even measure the toppings, i just put on as much coconut as looks good and then i use mini chocolate chips (i like my coconut to chocolate ratio to be about 70/30). and we are a mostly nut-free household so we usually just skip them.

hope you're having a great day!
xo, carly
