Yummy Christmas Treats

I know that this is a little late, but for yummy treats it is never late.  I wanted to post the recipe for a treat that we have every year at Christmas.  My mom always made them and now I make them every year.  Christmas would not be the same with out Magic Cookie Bars!  They are very easy to make and even easier to eat.  What are your family traditional foods?? 

Yield: 2 dozen bars

Nutrition: Um who cares its Christmas!
Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cook Time: 30 Minutes


Crisco® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 (14 oz.) can Eagle Brand® Sweetened Condensed Milk (of course any brand works)
2 cups (12 oz. pkg.) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/3 cups flaked coconut
1 cup chopped nuts (we always use walnuts)


HEAT oven to 350°F. Spray 13 x 9-inch baking pan with no-stick cooking spray.

COMBINE graham cracker crumbs and butter in small bowl. 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 fork.

BAKE 25 to 30 minutes or until lightly browned. Loosen from sides of pan while still warm; cool on wire rack. Cut into bars or diamonds.

For perfectly cut cookie bars, line entire pan with foil, extending foil over edge of pan. Coat lightly with no-stick cooking spray. After bars have baked and cooled, lift up with edges of foil to remove from pan. Cut into individual bars.


SUBSTITUTE chocolate chips or nuts with candy coated pieces, dried cranberries, raisins, mini-marshmallows or butterscotch chips.  Peanut butter chips are yummy too.

This recipe is borrowed from Eagle Brand® Sweetened Condensed Milk.  They had absolutely nothing to do with me posting this.  We just love cookie bars.  All opinions are my own.
