Joyeux Noël From A Taste of Paris


Lorie magic bars

One last treat before Christmas!

My mother’s favorite goodie this time of year is what we always called Magic Bars and believe me they are magical!  Gooey chocolate with crispy nuts and a dusting of coconut.  All of that goodness and the prep time is literally 5 minutes.

I hope you will make a little magic in your kitchen this year.

Magic Bars

1 stick butter, melted

8 whole graham crackers

1 ½ cup chopped walnuts

2 cups shredded sweetened coconut

1 12 ounce package semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 can sweetened condensed milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Pour melted butter into the bottom of a greased 9×13 glass baking dish.  Crush graham crackers into a fine powder.  Sprinkle crumbs evenly over butter.  Sprinkle first a layer of walnuts, then chocolate and last coconut.  Drizzle milk evenly over coconut.  Bake for 18-22 minutes until coconut is lightly browned.  Let cool before slicing to serve.

  1. These are one of my favorites, too! Seems like they go by a few different names. One of the shops here in Dallas calls them Hello Dollys! A magic bar by any other name is still magical! Thanks for sharing!
