These bars pass by a couple of various names, similar to 7-Layer Bars or Hello Dollies. however, I’ve constantly referred to them as Magic Bars.

They are an unadulterated Midwestern treat for me, frequently brought to potlucks to balance a common feast. Every one of the names for a similar sweet may appear to be confounding. however, fortunately, there’s nothing befuddling about making them.

The genuine enchantment of these rich, sweet Magic Bars is that they are so natural to make. There’s no blending, no creaming spread with sugar, no including the eggs each one in turn.

Rather, Magic Bars are essentially assembled from a pantry of stock ingredients, which are then sprinkled and layered one over the following. (More often than not there are seven unique fixings, which clarifies, in any event, one of the substitute names!)

Enchantment Bars The one fundamental fixing in the entire formula is improved dense milk. This sticky, gooey, nectar thick dense milk is the thing that ties every one of the fixings together. It likewise caramelizes in the stove, giving a sweet profundity to each chomp like dulce de leche.

Likewise, ensure you read the marks and purchase improved dense milk, not vanished milk—the jars look fundamentally the same as.

Yield: 24 bars
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 30 minutes


These bars are so rich and sweet, you can cut them into 24 little bars and still feel fulfilled.

I like to include a sprinkle of flaky Maldon salt on top to include some crunch and help cut the sweet lavishness. The salt is absolutely non-customary, however, so preclude on the off chance that you need that nostalgic, ultra-sweet Magic Bar involvement.


  • 2 cups (225 g) graham wafer pieces
  • 1/2 cup (115 g/1 stick) liquefied unsalted spread
  • 14 ounces (396 g/1 can) improved consolidated milk
  • 1 cup (185 g) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup (185 g) butterscotch chips
  • 1 cup (115 g) cleaved walnuts
  • 1 cup (105 g) destroyed improved coconut
  • 1 teaspoon flaky ocean salt (like Maldon), discretionary


  1. Preheat stove to 350F. Splash a 9 x 13-inch heating dish with cooking oil at that point line it with material paper.
  2. Make the graham saltine outside: Place the graham wafer pieces and the softened margarine in a bowl. Hurl with a fork until the pieces are damp and hold together when pressed with your hand. Dump the scraps in the container and afterward press them into an even layer with your fingers or the back of a level bottomed cup.
  3. Pour the improved consolidated milk over the graham saltine outside. Spread to edges of the container with a spatula.
  4. Layer on the remainder of the fixings: In this request, sprinkle the chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, walnuts, and after that improved coconut over the highest point of the consolidated milk. Tenderly press the fixings down with your palm so they adhere to the dense milk.
  5. Bake in the stove for 30 to 35 minutes. Heat until the edges of the bars turn brilliant dark-colored and begin to pull away marginally from the sides of the container. Expel from the broiler and sprinkle with the ocean salt (if utilizing).
  6. 6 Cool totally before lifting the bars out of the skillet utilizing the material paper. Cut into 24 pieces and store in a hermetically sealed compartment with wax paper or material paper between layers. The kind of bars is shockingly better the day in the wake of preparing. Bars put away at room temperature will be genuinely delicate and are best eaten inside 3 to 5 days. For firm and chewy bars, store in the ice chest for as long as seven days.
