I have been fortunate enough to be given a very famous recipe amongst friends at school that is made often by one of my good friend’s Mom. I feel like when they come out of the oven everyone around can just sense and smell them drawing them into their deliciousness. We are lucky if they last a day!!! They are a great easy and tasty treat that everyone would enjoy! All the credit goes to the Mateus family!

Magic Bar Recipe

2 cups graham cracker crumbs
4 tablespoons butter, melted
1 12 oz bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 12 oz bag butterscotch baking chips
1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and grease a 9 x 13 baking dish.

Combine the graham cracker crumbs and melted butter until all the graham cracker is coated and press evenly into the bottom of the pan.

Pour the condensed milk over the top of the crumbs. Sprinkle the chocolate chips and butterscotch chips over the top until completely covered. (You can add as much as you would like or more of one or the other depending on preference)

Bake for 17-20 minutes. Let cool completely before cutting and serving.

*You can be creative with what you add in, too. Coconut flakes, toffee pieces, and peanut butter baking chips are a few examples.

WARNING: Magic bars are an absolute hit and you will be asked to make them many, many more times after the first so be prepared!

A special thank you for the delicious recipe to Mrs. Mateus and of course one of my best friends “Mate”!
