Magic Cookie Obsession

I am in the middle of making my third,
count it, 1, 2, 3,
batch of Magic Cookie Bars in like a week! Actually it will be a week tomorrow- YIKES!
I had forgotten how yummy these were.
Sooo, I thought it being the Sweet Month, I'd share the recipe.
You can go here and get a 13x9 inch pan recipe with measurements, or you can just do what I do:
Gather supplies:
  • 5 Tbsp butter
  • Graham cracker crumbs, I like to make my own, put a package of graham crackers in a large plastic bag and roll out with a rolling pin until crumbs
  • Chocolate chips
  • Coconut
  • Nuts, I use pecans, but you can use whatever you have around
  • Small can sweetened condensed milk
  • 8 x 8 pan

Melt butter in microwave
Add enough graham crackers so the mixture is somewhat firm
Spread into bottom of pan, pressing it down tightly

Pour condensed milk over the top of graham cracker base, enough to cover. I don't think it really matters how much you use.

Sprinkle with chopped nuts, coconut and chips
Again, I don't think it really matters what order or how much, I tend to go heavier on the chocolate chips *smile*

Variations: add peanut butter chips, butterscotch chips

I prefer the straight up way and also you MUST, MUST have some when they are gooey and hot out of the oven.

I figure since I'm training for this 5k, chuckling at myself, but, since I am running this thing I'm trying to over-kill the sweets so they make me sick and I give them up altogether? OK, just give me a week I'll be over my sweet kick ;-)

More on the 5k thing when I have a week under my belt,
until them- Happy Eats!!
