The bottom of these magic cookie bars has a buttery graham cracker layer topped with sweetened condensed milk which “magically” comes together to make a cookie base. Topped with peanuts and Reese’s candy, what’s not to love?

This is an adaptation of the classic magic bar recipe which is made with graham crackers, condensed milk, semisweet chocolate chips, and shredded coconut.

Let’s take a look at how to make this addictive treat.

Ingredients

 For this version, you need the following:

  • 2 ⅔ cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 cup melted butter
  • 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
  • 1½ cups chopped peanuts
  • 1 cup Reese’s peanut butter chips
  • 8.5-ounce package Reese’s Baking Cups and Reese’s PIECES Candy
Graham cracker crumbs, chopped peanuts, Reese's candy, melted butter, and can of condensed milk.

How To Make Magic Bars 

  1. Preheat oven to 350° Fahrenheit. Spray a 9×13-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Set the pan aside.
  2. Stir graham cracker pieces and butter together in a medium-sized bowl. Press buttered graham cracker pieces onto the bottom of the prepared baking dish.

6. Remove from oven and cut into bars.

Store the bars in an airtight container at room temperature. They are best if consumed within 5 days.

Recipe Notes

While these bars were made in a pan using aluminum foil, I don’t recommend it. If you feel the need to line your pan, I recommend that you use parchment paper. I think that a good layer of nonstick cooking spray should be sufficient.

You can crush graham crackers in the package itself or use a food processor to do the trick for you. You will need 4 small packs of graham crackers or 2 large packs for this recipe.

You can easily melt butter in the microwave. Be sure to cover it so that it does not splatter. Microwave in 30-second increments.

If you can’t find peanut butter baking chips, feel free to use 1 cup of chocolate chips.

If anyone out there makes these using chocolate graham crackers, please come back and tell me how they turned out.
