Welcome to Day 9 of my annual Christmas Rosiethon.
Today, our sweet treat is Magic Cookie Bars, a quick, easy, and delicious layered cookie casserole.
Magic Cookie Bars
1 stick unsalted butter
1 ½ cups graham cracker crumbs (That’s one wrapped package out of the box.)
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup chocolate chips
4 ounces coconut
1 cup chopped pecans
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Melt butter in a 9- x 13-inch pan.
Sprinkle graham crackers crumbs over butter.
Pour milk over crumbs.
Top with chips, coconuts, and nuts.
Bake 25-30 minutes.
Let cool and slice into bars.
Do not use generic chocolate chips. They are inferior to Ghirardelli or Nestle’s.
When spreading out the crumbs in the butter, it helps to use a mini-rolling pin.

Last year for our readers, Day 9 produced two toffee recipes.
