This is my take on the Magic Cookie Bar. These could also be called Clean Our Your Cupboard Bars. You could experiment with different cracker, nut, chocolate combinations with whatever you have in the cupboard.
- 6 oz. Wheat Thins or Saltines, or Ritz…
- 1/2 C. butter, melted
- 1/4 C. brown sugar
- 3/4 C. shredded coconut, divided
- 1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
- 1/2 C. salted cashews
- 1/2 C. salted peanut
- 3-4 oz. milk chocolate chips
- 1 t. flake sea salt, such as Maldon
Pulse the Wheat Thins in the food processor until they are coarse crumbs. Stir the crumbs together with the melted butter, brown sugar, and 1/4 C. of the coconut. Line a 13 x 9 inch glass baking dish with parchment and press the crumb mixture into it with your fingers. Pour the sweetened condensed milk over the top evenly. Sprinkle the top with the nuts, the rest of the coconut and the chocolate chips. Top with the flake salt. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes, or until it’s bubbly and golden. Cool completely before cutting.
