Magic Cookie Bars
There are few desserts that get me as excited as those with both chocolate and peanut butter. If I can find a way to insert both into a recipe, I am a very happy girl. So I’m hoping you will be happy as well with these Peanut Butter Chocolate Magic Bars!
These gooey delicious magic cookie bars will make you forget any basic magic bar recipe that you may have tried. The buttery shortbread is topped with coconut, peanut butter and chocolate chips for a classic flavor combo that your family will love!
Depending on the level of sweetness that you prefer, you can use either milk chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate chips for this recipe. I went with a combination of both, but you can absolutely do one or the other. Your choice!
Magic Bars Recipe
1 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 can sweetened condensed milk 14 oz
1 1/4 cups coconut
1 cup chocolate chips (semi-sweet, milk or a combination of both)
1 cup peanut butter chips
Preheat the oven to 350 and grease a 9 x 9″ square baking pan.
Take out a stand mixer or a bowl and a hand mixer. Beat the butter, brown sugar and vanilla until they are creamy. Add in the flour and salt and combine.
Transfer the dough into the prepared baking pan, using your fingers to press the dough evenly into the bottom.
Bake the shortbread for 15 minutes, until the crust is just starting to turn golden brown.
Pour the sweetened condensed milk over the top of the shortbread. Sprinkle the coconut evenly over the top of the milk and then add the chocolate and peanut butter chips.
Bake for another 20-22 minutes. Remove it from the oven and allow it to cool completely before cutting.
