I love magic bars and have been wanting to make over the old traditional recipe for a long time now. Once I managed to make the Dulce de Leche sauce in a previous recipe, I realized that it was pretty much a replacement for sweetened condensed milk and could be used for making magic bars. My daughter is home for the holidays and she’s been pestering me to bake her something so I figured this would hit the spot.
I made this same crust in a previous recipe and was really happy with the way it turned out so I didn’t change it at all. The only thing I did different was to shorten the baking time since the bars were going to have to bake after the crust was made.
I made sweetened condensed milk first:
Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until reduced down to a thick caramel sauce. This takes about 1 1/2 hours.
Pour over your crust.
Now sprinkle 1 cup of chocolate chips (which I can’t get here so I used chopped 78% dark chocolate) over the top. Then sprinkle on 1/2 cup of chopped pecans. Then sprinkle 3/4 shredded coconut over that. Now squish it all down with a spoon.
Place in a preheated 175 C/350 F oven and bake for 20 minutes. Chill in the fridge for an hour or stick it in the freezer for 20 minutes before cutting into squares.
They were, indeed, magical. They tasted just like the magic bars I remember.
