Magic Cookie Bars

A little piece of childhood has been calling out to me for some time now...therefore it was time to give-in to a bit of nostalgia that my girls had not experienced yet.  Can you believe they haven't had  Magic Cookie Bars?!

My solution to my family's pickiness...make a batch with the alternative choices holding their own position in each third of the pan. (pre-bake)  This way everyone gets to grab a bar that they love!

Magic Cookie Bars
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Bake Time: 25-30 minutes
Yield: 18-24 bars

1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, melted
1 (14 oz.) can Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk
2 cups (12 ounces) semi sweet chocolate chips or 60% cocao chips
1 1/3 cups flaked coconut
1 cup chopped nuts

Preheat oven to 350°F (325°F for glass dish).
In a small bowl combine the graham cracker crumbs and butter.  Mix well.
Firmly press crumb mixture onto the bottom of a 13x9-inch baking pan.

Pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over crumb mixture.
Layer evenly with remaining ingredients and press down firmly with a fork.

Bake 25-30 minutes or lightly browned.
Cool. Chill before serving if desired.
Cut into little bars.
Store covered at room temperature.

White chocolate morsels alone or combined with chocolate morsels.
Peanut butter chips or Reese's Pieces
