Food Snob


My mom makes this recipe every Christmas. Since moving away from “home,” I’ve taken over the tradition. These are my second favorite Christmas cookie, and they go over extremely well at the office or at any party. Last year one of the Tool Designers I worked with begged me for the recipe so he could make them for his kids.


  • 1 1/2 c. butter or margarine
  • 1 box graham crackers, crushed with a rolling-pin
  • 2 14-oz cans sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 c. butterscotch flavored chips
  • 2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3 c. flaked coconut
  • 1 c. chopped walnut


  1. Preheat oven to 325°
  2. Place the butter in a 15×11-inch glass baking dish and melt it in the oven. Sprinkle crumbs over butter and combined until mixed – press the mixture evenly into the bottom of the pan. Pour one can of condensed milk evenly on top of crumbs.
  3. Top with remaining ingredients in order listed; press down firmly with fork. Drizzle second can of condensed milk across the top.
  4. Bake 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool.
  5. Chill if desired. Cut into bars. Store covered at room temperature.

This recipe is also known as Seven Layer Magic Bars or just Magic Bars. In our family they’re just Seven-layer Bars. Like most recipes I continue to make, I have tweaked this recipe to make it my own. My special added touch is the second can of condensed milk drizzled over the top. The second can ensures these normally gooey bars are even gooey-er.

Throw these in the freezer so they last longer. This is another cookie that I enjoy to eat when frozen.
