Magic Surprise Bars

Oh man, my mouth is salivating just looking that them!  Its the perfect combo of chocolate, coconut and gooeyness.

Magic Surprise Bar IngredientsThis is all you’re going to need.  And of course you don’t need such a giant bag of chocolate chips but I was shopping at BJ’s so I wanted to save some money with the giant pack.

Graham Cracker Crumbs

Like I said earlier, this recipes doesn’t even require a mixer!  Just grab a giant bowl and pour the whole bag of graham cracker crumbs into it.

Mixed dry ingredients

Add the coconut and chocolate chips in as well and mix together.

Add the sweetened Condensed MilkNow for the fun part, pour the sweetened condensed milk into the bowl.

Mix the batterAfter some mixing, the batter should look like this.  I would use a wooden spoon as the mixture can get pretty gooey.

Magic Surprise Bars ready for the ovenPat the mixture down into a greased 9×13″ pan.  I would just use your hands to pat it down.

Baked Magic Surprise BarsAnd here are the bars right out of the oven!  Cook them until the slides just start to brown, about 25 minutes.

Sliced Magic Surprise BarsYou can slice them however you want.  If I am giving them away or taking them to an event, I normally cut them up pretty small like this.  If you’re just eating them yourself, feel free to cut them to whatever size you desire!
