Magic 8 Bars
Original Blog post by: Confections, Crafts and Couture.
It's a new day and a new year! The new year also brings to me a sense of rebirth and rejuvenation. For the past few years I have purposely been taking a trip at the end of the year to prepare my mind for the next year ahead. At the beginning of the year I'm not one to set resolutions for myself, but I definitely do set goals for myself.
I love the inquiry and enchantment that the new year brings. I usually spend the first few weeks of the year working on a vision board or writing in my journal. I have always felt like seeing my goals in real life is an important step in manifestation and accomplishment for the year. I honestly am not a big believer in horoscopes or wizardry, but I definitely do believe we create our own magic.
I thought I would use the allurement of the new year to create a fabulous new recipe. This recipe is based on the classic seven layer bars but even better with an extra layer of sparkle. I decided to add some pizzazz to the bars by topping them off with our Tina Snow Sprinkle Mix. The sorcery of these bars is that they are super easy to make, delicious and disappear right before your eyes. Definitely save this recipe for now or later.
See the super delicious, easy recipe and step by step video below.
1 ½ cups crushed graham cracker crumbs
½ cup butter, melted
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips
1 cup sweetened flaked coconut
½ cup chopped walnuts (or nut of your choice)
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
½ cup Tina Snow Sprinkle Mix (optional)
Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Spray a 9×13 inch baking pan with cooking spray or line with parchment paper and set aside.
Melt butter in a small saucepan or using the microwave in a small bowl. Remove the butter from heat and stir in graham cracker crumbs until throughly combined. Press evenly into the bottom of a 9×13 inch baking pan to form the crust.
Evenly sprinkle remaining ingredients one by one over the crust to form layers, beginning with the chocolate chips, followed by the butterscotch chips, coconut and walnuts. Pour the condensed milk evenly over the top, and spread with a rubber spatula to make sure it's evenly distributed.
Scatter the sprinkle mix evenly on top of the bars.
Bake in preheated oven for 25-30 minutes until edges are golden brown and the middle is set.
Allow bars to completely cool to room temperature before slicing.
Devour and Enjoy!
