Magic Bars, also known as Hello Dollys, live up to the adage that bar cookies are the easiest of all the cookies to make. This recipe, or maybe we shouldn't even call it a recipe as it is so little work, is just about layering and baking six ingredients; melted butter, graham cracker crumbs, flaked or shredded coconut, chocolate chips, chopped walnuts (or pecans), and a can of sweetened condensed milk (in that order).

Recipe Ingredients for Magic Bars

1/2 cup (113 grams) unsalted butter, melted
1 1/2 cups (150 grams) graham cracker crumbs
1 1/3 cups (90 grams) unsweetened coconut
1 cup (170 grams) semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup (100 grams) chopped walnuts
1 ounce can (396 grams) condensed milk sweetened

Recipe Directions for Magic Bars

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C) and place the rack in the center of the oven. Lightly butter or spray with a non stick cooking spray a 9 x 9 inch (23 x 23 cm) square baking pan.

  2. Melt the butter and pour it evenly over the bottom of your pan. Sprinkle the graham cracker crumbs evenly over the butter. Sprinkle the coconut over the crumbs. Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the coconut. Sprinkle the nuts over the chocolate chips. Finally, evenly drizzle the sweetened condensed milk over all the ingredients. Do not mix the ingredients together, just layer them.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven for about 30 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the squares comes out clean. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool. Cut into squares. Store in the refrigerator. These bars can be frozen.
