You know how yummy magic cookie bars are? (So yummy, that I made ice cream!) That nutty, buttery graham cracker crust, topped with nuts, chocolate chips, coconut,butterscotch chips, and sweetened condensed milk. Yup, those magic cookie bars!
Well, let’s turn it into a brownie- shall we?!!!!
I love brownies! It doesn’t matter if they are plain (must be fudgey, though!), or filled, or topped with a bunch of stuff (fruit, nuts, candy, etc.). These magic cookie brownies, though, have made it as one of my top 5 brownies! Oh my! It’s a good thing I only kept one piece for myself and quickly gave the rest away, or you would find me sitting on the couch with a fork in one hand and the pan in the other! So good!!
Magic Cookie Brownies
Makes 1, 13×9 inch pan
Prep time: 10 minutes Bake time: 37-40 minutes
1 package brownie mix, plus ingredients for brownies
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
1 14oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups sweetened, flaked, coconut
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, prepare brownie mix as directed. Set aside.
In a small mixing bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs and the melted butter. Mix well. Pour into a greased 13 x 9 inch pan (I line mine with foil, then spray the foil with cooking spray), and press the crumbs onto the bottom of the pan. Bake for 5 minutes.
After 5 minutes, remove the pan from the oven and pour on the prepared brownie mix, spreading evenly. Top with 1/2 of the can of sweetened condensed milk. Sprinkle on the chocolate chips and coconut, then drizzle on the remaining sweetened condensed milk. Bake for 37-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the brownie, comes out clean. Don’t overbake these!
Once the toothpick test is clean, remove the brownies from the oven and let cool completely. Note: A sharp knife, dipped in hot water (and quickly dried) will give you nice clean cuts. Enjoy!
Made with love, not calories!
