Magic Bar Fudge is two classic desserts in one place! Creamy chocolate fudge, with butterscotch chips, and toasted coconut will be a sure favorite!
Wanted to pop in over the weekend and share a little something with you.
I know you are all scrambling to get your houses, menus and turkeys ready for Thanksgiving…but let’s just take a pause, just for a minute, to anticipate the upcoming Christmas season…
I know, I know, one holiday at a time…but I can’t help it! I’m not a Thanksgiving girl. You would think I would be, I mean it’s a holiday completely geared towards stuffing your face, putting on happy pants and then napping. I mean, that’s basically my dream world. But for some reason, it’s just not my favorite. I look at it like this: pie…no thanks, turkey…meh, stuffing…well, alright stuffing I could make a meal out of…but overall, not my thang. Maybe if I could convince my husband that there needs to be presents on Thanksgiving I could learn to love it. Presents make everything better. Fact.
So while you all are thinking pumpkin pie and gravy, I am all about the Christmas cookie…I start planning my holiday baking pretty much in January. I bookmark, I pin, I gather scrap recipes in a folder. Yep, it’s all about the Christmas cookie.
With that said, you want to take a gander at what I came up with?
It’s Magic Bar Fudge.
Here’s what I did:
I coarsely chopped up some graham crackers.
I toasted some coconut over low heat until it got to be this pretty golden color…
I chopped up some walnuts…
Then I mixed some chocolate and butterscotch chips, a pinch of salt in a medium saucepan…
and poured a can of sweetened condensed milk in and melted it all together.
When the chocolate mixture melted, I folded in the graham crackers and nuts and spread into my foil-lined pan.
I sprinkled my toasted coconut on top and let it chill in the fridge.
Now you should really let it set up in the fridge for a good 2 hours, but I may or may not have sampled it before then…SO, if you aren’t above eating melty fudge with a spoon over the pan, now would be the time.
