Can I just tell you, I ate half the pan of these bars :(. Once I start, I can’t stop. It’s a bad, very bad thing when I bake. Magic cookie bars are my all time favorite sweet. They are the simplest and easiest cookie to make but be careful, they are SO addicting! Of course, my grandfather thought these were for him but I had to quickly remind him that his diabetes is out of control! He gave me dirty look and went back to watching tv. 🙂

  1. Thanks, just made these….she said 20 lbs. heavier 😉

  2. I grew up with Magic Cookie bars too! Love them….finally got smart as an adult and starting making them as the perfect quick sweet to bring to picnics, parties, etc. One thing we do differently–my mom always did this–is to use crushed cornflakes and not graham cracker crumbs. You put the stick of butter in the 9×13 pan and let it melt–then add crushed cornflakes–maybe about 2.5-3 cups or so. Press it down just like the graham crackers… YUM!! Makes this buttery crispy bottom that is the best part of the bars!!!

    thanks for the memories!
