Magic Cookie Bars

I love this time of year! I feel like I constantly want to have something baking in the oven to share with friends and family! Christmas baking can turn into a full time job!! A tasty, fattening full time job! Luckily this recipe is quick, easy, and tastes amazing! I wouldn’t try to pass these cookies off as healthy but this time of year we all seem to be willing to indulge a little. I’ve seen many variations over the years for these yummy cookie bars but this is my take on the situation!

Press crumb mixture into the bottom of a greased pan. I used an 11×8 tart pan with a removable bottom.

Once crumbs are pressed in to pan evenly spread sweetened condensed milk over them.

In a separate bowl combine chocolate chips,butterscotch chips, nuts, and coconut. Toss to combine.

Evenly spread mixture on top of condensed milk. I use the back of a spatula to firmly press the mix into the condensed milk.

Place entire tart pan on a cookie sheet and Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 25 minutes.

Allow to cool on rack for easier cutting.
