Cookie of the Month :: Magic Cookie Bars

I did it … I made homemade cookies every month of 2012.  And now I’m done. {smile}  It’s not really my thing.  I think I prefer to bake without the pressure of a commitment.

But here we go with the last Cookie of the Month and a family favorite.  It’s actually a bar, which I’ve avoided in this little series, but since it has “cookie” in the title I’m letting it slide.

Magic Cookie Bars

1 1/2 cups corn flake crumbs

3 tablespoons sugar

1/2 cup butter, melted

6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 1/3 cups flaked coconut

1 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped

1 can Eagle Brand milk

Measure crumbs, sugar, and margarine into a 9×13 pan.  Mix thoroughly.  Press evenly and firmly into bottom of pan.  Scatter chips over crust, then coconut, then walnuts.  Pour milk evenly over walnuts.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes.  Cool.  Cut into bars.

These are so delicious … don’t blame me if you eat the whole pan!

  1. any recipe that starts with cornflakes is good in my book!

  2. Hmmm, looks like a “square” to me.

  3. Oh… I’ve never tried it with cornflakes. I have always used graham crumbs instead. I’ll have to try the cornflakes.

  4. There you go…letting things slide at the end of the year! ;)
