Magic Dream Bars

22 Apr

Introduction:

Dear Readers, did you think we forgot about you? Well, to make it up to you here’s a recipe that will take your taste buds to heaven! Some people call them “magic bars”, some call them “dream bars” but at TCF we call them “Magic Dream Bars” (how original right?). These bars are so easy to make, so delicious, and really flexible. They always end up being a what’s-in-the-cupboard kind of dessert, so feel free to experiment. We’ve had so many combinations of these…with nuts, toffee, butterscotch, peanut butter chips etc. They always taste delicious; so just go crazy and don’t worry about quantities. In our experience, if you ever serve these tasty treats people will think you’re a gourmet chef.

Ingredients:

  •  1/4 cup butter
  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup toffee pieces
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup chopped nuts
  • 1-1/2 cup coconut
  • 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk

Instructions:

1.) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. While oven is warming, melt butter in 9×13 pan in oven. When melted, take out of oven and mix in graham cracker. [Optional: Put back into the oven to crisp (5-10 minutes).]

2.) Layer your chocolate chips, toffee pieces, white chocolate chips, and nuts. Add the coconut to the top. Pour the can of condensed milk over the top.

3.) Bake 20-25 minutes until golden and beautiful!

4.) Let cool, cut and serve.

    Mmmm delicious!

    Another variation is to use sweetened condensed milk in the first layer. Crush the graham crackers and spread in the bottom of the pan and then pour a can of the milk across the graham crackers. It soaks in as it bakes and makes a soft, sweet tasty crust.
