  • 1 1/2 cups graham crackers crumbs (I prefer Keebler)
  • 10 Tablespoons salted butter , melted
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup butterscotch chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans , more if desired
  • 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup sweetened coconut


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 9x13" baking pan with parchment paper or foil. Lightly grease. 
  • In a medium-sized bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs and butter with a fork. Then press crumbs into pan. Next layer chocolate chips, white chips, butterscotch chips and nuts. Then pour the sweetened condensed milk evenly over top. Sprinkle with coconut.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the top is lightly browned. Let cool, then cut into bars or diamonds. 



  • You can make your own graham cracker crumbs if preferred. Add about 10 graham cracker sheets in a food processor and pulse. Measure mixture to make sure it’s 1 ½ cups. If you need more crumbs, crush half of graham cracker at a time and add.
  • To cut into diamonds, simply make horizontal cuts across the pan about an inch and a half apart. Next make diagonal cuts across the pan about an inch and a half apart. Then gently lift magic bars out of pan and serve.
  • Feel free to swap coconut with pretzel pieces, mini marshmallows or more nuts on top.
  • Magic bars will keep for about 3-4 days if stored at room temp in an airtight container.
  • To freeze, place in a freezer container or bag and store for up to 2 months.
