Tis the Season...
for holiday snacks!
As part of my annual mission to sweeten everyone up prior to the holidays I made a family favorite, Magic Bars.
Mom gave me this recipe a long time ago and I just LOVE them! So ooey gooey, chocolatey and rich...Wowzer! We've made these bars off and on over the years. I sure you come to find they are a great staple for holiday goodies!
The first batch was given to my co-workers. One person said, "What makes them Magic Bars?" to which I replied, "They are so rich that they will send you in to euphoria, taking all your cares away!. Man oh man, they were all gone in 20 minutes. They LOVED them.
A mix of coconut, butterscotch, chocolate, pecans, and other tempting ingredients, make these over the moon! You may know them as Hello Dolly Bar, or Seven Layer Bars...but to us they are "Magic Bars". Another plus for these bar is that they are simple to assemble, you can prep them in 15 min. tops! I love that, easy and quick! Especially when you are making a load of holiday goodies.
MGG's staff gets to eat the 2nd batch...wooowee! Hope they like them.
So I hope you add these bars to your list of sweets you are making this season. They are delishhh and sinful!
