7 Layer Magic Cookie Bars are crunchy, chewy, and decadently sweet! Made using a rich mix of graham crackers, sweetened condensed milk, chocolate and butterscotch chips, coconut, and nuts, these easy-to-make bars are delightfully gooey and delicious!


Units Scale
  • 1 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs (around 10 to 12 graham crackers)
  • 1/2 cup melted butter (One stick of butter)
  • 14 oz can of Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips (Plus a few more for garnish)
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (milk chocolate works too) (Plus a few more for garnish)
  • 1 1/3 cups sweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 cup chopped nuts


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 13 x 9-inch baking pan with foil or parchment paper. Spray lining with no-stick cooking spray, making sure to coat the sides thoroughly.
  2. Mix the graham cracker crumbs and butter and press the crumb mixture firmly into the bottom of the prepared pan, using the bottom of a measuring cup.
  3. Pour the sweetened condensed milk evenly over the graham cracker mixture. Next, add the butterscotch and the chocolate chip layers. Spread the coconut flakes evenly over the previous layers and finally top with the chopped nuts. Press the mixture down firmly with the back of a measuring cup.
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool. Sprinkle the top of the bars with a few more chocolate and butterscotch chips. (I like to use the back of a spoon to spread the melted chips around the top.)
  5. For perfectly cut cookie bars, place the bars in the fridge until they are firm, then remove from the baking dish using the foil liner and cut with a sharp knife.
