Christmas Cookie Recipe of the Day: Magic Cookie Bars

Posted in Recipes by Sarah on December 5, 2009

I  have to confess I am all out of Mom’s Christmas cookie recipes.  I know that many have been circulated to and between the siblings over the years, but that Mom is the ultimate resource!  I’d love it if YOU could share some of the recipes that you have for the daily Christmas cookie recipe post.  In the meantime, I’m sharing a recipe for a classic cookie Mom always makes.  I swiped this recipe from the internet, but it sounds pretty similar – if not identical – to Mom’s recipe.

Enjoy the magic of the season!

Magic Cookie Bars


  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 cup margarine, melted
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup butterscotch chips
  • 1 1/2 cups flaked coconut
  • 1 1/3 cups sweetened condensed milk


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a 9 x 13 inch pan pour in melted margarine.  Sprinkle the graham cracker crumbs evenly over the margarine.
Next, place the chopped nuts over the crumbs.  Then spread the chocolate and butterscotch chips over the nuts.  Add the coconut over all, and pour the condensed milk evenly over the top.
Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until lightly brown on top.  Cool at least 20 minutes then cut into desired sized bars.
