Seven Layer Magic Bars
Seven Layered Magic Bars are magic bars are delicious layers of biscuit, nuts, chocolate, coconut and condensed milk baked to a delicious caramel colour.
Generally, my breakfast is on the table by 7:45 am but those sometimes when I get up late and when there is no fruit cutting to keep hubby dear busy then he starts opening all the tins for snacking.
Gets on my nerves!
So now this is one bar that will stall the snacking …hopefully for the tin is alarmingly half already and we cut these bars in the morning.
Magic bars or seven layer cookie bars as they are also called are dessert bars made in different flavours in the USA. These bars were suggested by my SIL Pooja apparently she makes them on a regular basis and they enjoy it a lot. It is such a simple recipe and absolutely can be made in 2-3 bowls.
Do try them out but mind you they are extremely addictive and even as I type this recipe out I am tempted to get some for myself.
Now the number of bars you can get depends on the size you make. Small squares or big rectangles I think I got 15-20 rectangle pieces. The nuts and chocolate chops are what I have used but you can use what you have at hand. try using truti fruti, raisins, dry figs… the options are endless.
The reason why I am posting this recipe now is that I am participating in Bake-a- ton. We are a group of bloggers and every year in December Srivalli, our gang leader organises it. We bake and post 3 days a week. The only condition is baked!!! Do try it out and join the fun.
I have to thank all my bake-a-ton members for bearing with my erratic schedule and posts. I have looked at pictures and then tried to match the recipes luckily my rusty brains remembered where I copied from and what I have done.
But it is too hectic and no enjoyment I would rather not do it again. I am yet to see what my friends have dished out.
But having said that I am happy that I posted for all the committed days where every day I expected to say I cannot do it!
