Today I have a SUPER yummy recipe to share with you. 7 layer magic bars … also known as “hello dollies.” That is what my grandma called them. We’ve been making these yummy cookie bars every Christmas since I was a little girl. These are another one of my moms specialty’s. Our friends always request them. They are my absolute favorite. They really are seven layers of magic. Chocolate and coconut heaven. Yes please!

7 layer “MAGIC” bars


  • 10 TB salted butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs (I prefer Keebler)
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup butterscotch chips
  • 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 1/4 cup sweetened coconut


  1. Heat oven to 350. In a medium sized bowl combine graham cracker crumbs and butter with a fork. Then press crumbs into a greased 9x13 pan (I line mine with foil). Next layer chocolate chips and then pour the sweetened condensed milk over top. Sprinkle with coconut and then bake for 25 minutes or until lightly browned.

    I’ve made these, and they’re definitely ARE magic! They always taste like ‘more’ until I’m totally crashed on the couch. What would be magic would be if I could manage to just eat half of one and leave the rest alone. LOL

    mmmm magic bars are absolutely one of my favorite treats. And I actually have extra butterscotch chips and coconut from a recipe I made last night, so I think these are on my list to make. At least if I give them to neighbors, hubs can’t be mad about me making extra treats.

    I make these pretty often- we love them! The crust I make is different- I use a stick of butter and a Devil’s Food cake mix. Just use a pastry blender and mix the butter in the dry cake mix until its crumbly. Gently press it in a large pan (I use a cookie sheet or jelly roll pan). Then add the layers of yummy toppings! Sometimes I add marshmallows just before the sweetened condensed milk- now they taste like s’mores! Mmmm!

    I make these every Christmas too. I always make them a little different depending on ingredients I have on hand. This year I did milk & white chocolate chips, coconut & walnuts. They are so good I could eat the whole pan.
