Feature: 12 Days of Easy Christmas Cookies #4 – Easy Christmas Magic Cookie Bars

Christmas Magic Cookie Bars are a variation of the classic one-pan bar cookie, first debuted in the 1960s and have been immensely popular ever since.

This easy Christmas cookie recipe is stacked in layers, first with a graham cracker crust followed by chocolate chips, nuts, and coconut drenched in sweetened condensed milk. Colored holiday sprinkles give the surface a festive look.

The recipe is made in layers in one pan. No mixing! Even the margarine (or butter) for the crust is melted in the baking pan and combined with the graham cracker crumbs, rather than combined in an extra bowl, saving clean up.Prep time: 10 minutes
Bake time: 25-30 minutes
Makes about 24-36 depending on how you cut them
