Magic Bar Fudge

Magic Bar Fudge is two classic desserts in one place! Creamy chocolate fudge, with butterscotch chips, and toasted coconut will be a sure favorite!

Three pieces of Magic Bar Fudge stacked on a napkin

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.

    oh my goodness i would LOVE to win this! i am all about baking this time of year, though every year my gma serves us lime sherbet with raspberries on Christmas…it’s tradition!

  6. I too am a holiday cookie baker. I always look forward to persimmon pudding with our holiday meals. Thanks for the chance to win the Eagle Brand give-a-way!

  7. Those Silicone Baking Liners are amazing! My favorite holiday baking memory is my grandmother making apple sauce cake in a cast iron skillet. She’d always bake it in the skillet instead of any of the cake pans she owned.

  8. My favorite holiday recipe is cookie doh truffles. They’re so addicting I only make them around the holidays. And only a batch (or two).
