Enjoy the holidays with these delicious treats. For something quick and easy, the cheese sausage rolls are perfect. A great dessert to top it off are the magic bars, which are sweet and filling.


Chocolate Butterscotch Magic Bar Cookies


  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips
  • 1 3/4 cups flaked coconut
  • 1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk


  1. Heat oven to 350°F.
  2. Evenly coat a 13 by 9 inch baking pan with melted butter.
  3. Press graham cracker crumbs into bottom of prepared pan. Try to create a thick even “crust” with the graham cracker and butter.
  4. Layer evenly with chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, and coconut.
  5. Pour can of sweetened condensed milk evenly over crumb mixture.
  6. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until lightly browned. Wait until the cookies are cool before removing from pan and cutting them.

Hint: These bars are easy to cut into fun shapes! Try a christmas tree cookie cutter to make it a bit more seasonal.
