Chocolate Lovers Magic Cookie Bars

Growing up my mom (miss you momma:) was a FABULOUS cook & baker. She made almost everything from scratch and I so wish she would have taught me instead of just doing it all by herself. (mental note to self - start getting Heather involved in the kitchen before these years pass us by)

Mom always made Christmas cookies which were good but one year she got ahold of a recipe for "Magic Cookie Bars" - you probably know the ones I'm talking about as they've showed up in recent years in a box by Eagle Brand.

I decided to give them a try this year making them from things I already had in the kitchen. I don't typically buy graham crackers as no one really likes them here unless we're having S' I searched for something that would be a yummy substitute and figured Double Stuff Oreos couldn't fail me. YUM!

Here's my version - tweaked for the Chocolate lover:

1/2 c butter
1/4 c light brown sugar (packed)
2 c Double Stuff Oreos (crushed)
2 c semi sweet chocolate chip morsels
1 c shredded coconut
1 c chopped pecans
1 can sweetened condensed milk

Preheat oven 350 degrees, spray 8x8 or 9x9 with non-stick spray, melt butter in pan in oven. Combine brown sugar and crushed oreos in a bowl and sprinkle evenly over melted butter. In layers, add 1 c chocolate chips, coconut and pecans. Pour sweetened condensed milk over top, add remaining 1 c chocolate chips. Bake for 30 min. Cool completely before slicing.
