Magic Cookie Bars


Magic Cookie Bars

Our girls’ ski weekend would not be complete without a big pan of chocolatey something. This year Lisa made one of our favorites, Magic Cookie Bars. Who doesn’t love a rich, buttery bar cookie loaded with coconut, chocolate chips and butterscotch?

One of the nice things about this recipe is that it gets made in a 9″ x 13″ pan – no mixing bowl required… perfect for assembling in an ill-equiped rental cabin.

Another great thing about these bars is that you will never be stuck dragging the leftovers back home after a long weekend. I promise. 🙂
