Sometimes, a girl just needs chocolate. And nuts. In a hurry. My go-to stress sweet treat is this super-yummy blend of some of my favorite flavors.

Total Time: 45 Min
Prep Time: 15 Min
Cook Time: 30 Min

Discover a dessert the whole crowd will love when you make these Chocolate Chunk Magic Cookies Bars. These Chocolate Chunk Magic Cookie Bars come with pecans and coconut for deliciously sweet and nutty flavor.

What You Need
1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
2 pkg. (4 oz. each) BAKER’S Semi-Sweet Chocolate, coarsely chopped
1-1/3 cups BAKER’S ANGEL FLAKE Coconut
1 cup chopped PLANTERS Pecans

Let’s Make It
1 – Heat oven to 350°F.
2 – Combine graham crumbs and butter; press onto bottom of 13×9-inch pan sprayed with cooking spray.
3 – Pour condensed milk over crust; top with layers of remaining ingredients. Press nuts lightly into coconut layer.
4 – Bake 30 min. or until lightly browned. Immediately run knife around edge of pan to loosen dessert from sides of pan. Cool completely before cutting into bars.

Kitchen Tips
Tip 1 – Size Wise: Balance out your food choices throughout the day so you can enjoy one of these bars. (This is only practical if you aren’t binge eating. Just sayin’…)

Tip 2 – Gift-It Idea: Layer bars in decorative holiday containers, wrap with ribbon and top with a bow. Makes gift-giving simple. (And this only works if you double the batch so you get to binge and still have bars left over for the gift. 😉 )

CLICK HERE to get all the nutritional detales from My Food and Family. Speaking of a girl needing chocolate STAT, a perfect example is any one of my Moonstruck heroines. When dealing with Wolves, they could all use this quick chocolate fix. However, arson investigator Leigh Daniels has all the reasons to binge because her hero? Brian “Smoke” Jenner is an arsonist. What can go wrong there, right? You can read their story, NIGHT FIRE, book 3 in the Nightriders series, for free with Kindle Unlimited or buy it from Amazon for $2.99. Just click on the cover pic or the title to hop on over there. If you haven’t read the book, you know you want to….

What about y’all? What’s your comfort food?

  1. Everyone needs to read your books. Jus’ sayin’.

    This is like a truncated version of my seven-layer bars. Five layer, I guess. So yummy. (Although, right now, I can’t think of what my other two layers are. Derp. It’s one of those brain-free mornings, I guess.)

      I totally agree! EVERYONE needs to/should read my books. How else will I become a best-selling author? 😆 These bars are totally easy if the ingredients are on hand and soooo yummy. All the mates agree. And they’re stingy. They don’t always share with the Wolves. ;D
