It’s possible that you’ve seen these bars before. I think they’re pretty popular. They have other names like Hello Dolly bars or 7 layer bars, but I think Magic Bars makes the most sense. I mean isn’t it pretty much magic that you can create such a delicious and decadant treat without having to do much work at all? Seriously, I have loved these bars for ages, but I never knew how simple they really are.
Whipping up a batch of these crowd-pleasing delicious bars is so easy, that the most novice “non-baker” out there could easily conquer them. I wouldn’t even really consider baking a skill you need to make these. No baking soda, or powder, or flour. No real quantities to stick to, and an infinite amount of creative freedom. It’s as simple as mixing some cookie crumbs with butter and sugar, baking that crust for 10 minutes, and then just throwing everything else in on top of that. Simple.
This recipe normally contains nuts, but since I married a “nuts-ruin-baked-goods” man, I skipped them. I added butterscotch chips, but you could also add M&Ms, white chocolate, peanut butter chips or more. So many options. This way, they tastes kinda like Samoas, but way easier. Enjoy! :)
