Who says you can’t have your cookies … and eat your candy, too?

These Chocolate Magic Bar Cookies mimic the original Magic Bars, but with a fun variation for chocoholics out there: the crust is made from chocolate sandwich cookies rather than graham crackers, as is traditional.

When you sprinkle chocolate or peanut butter candies on top, you get to eat both of your fave treats.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Bake time: 25-30 minutes
Makes 24-36 bars
