Magic Cookie Bars

When I was a child, I remember Mom making cookies she called “7 Steps to Heaven”.  They were soooo good!  I came upon this recipe for magic cookie bars on another blog that I read regularly, www.mybakingaddiction.com

These cookies are really similar to the 7 Step bars, they just have 5 layers instead of 7.  These are easy, rich and delish!  Give them a try.

1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (1 envelope of crackers, crushed)

1/2 cup butter, melted

1 cup chopped pecans (The original recipe calls for walnuts, I just prefer pecans.  Use either or both.  It doesn’t matter.)

1 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1 1/2 cups flaked coconut

1 1/3 cup (1 can) sweetened condensed milk


Preheat oven to 350.  Line a 9×13” pan with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray. 


In a medium bowl, mix together the butter and graham crackers.  Evenly press the mixture into the bottom of the lined pan.

Next place the chopped nuts over the graham cracker crust and spread the chocolate chips over the nuts.  Add the coconut over all, and pour the milk evenly over the top.

Bake 25-30 minutes or until lightly browned on top.  Cool at least 20 minutes, then cut into desired sized bars.
