Magic Bars

What makes a recipe “magic”? How about adding 7 ingredients to a baking tin, popping in the oven, and removing perfectly layered bars like this?*

If you’re impressed already, then just wait until you taste these Magic Bars. Oh. My. Word. I was actually quite taken aback by the deliciousness of them. Imagine a crunchy biscuit base, topped with a soft chocolate layer, chewy coconut and almonds and lastly a layer of crunchy golden granola. All these flavours and textures do a magic happy dance in your mouth, and before you know it you’re reaching for another one.  At this point I expect you’ll be quite blown away by the wizardry of these bars, but there is one last sprinkling of magic – the incredible lack of dirty dishes in your sink since you didn’t even use a mixing bowl!

*Ok I lied a little, you still have to slice them, they don’t actually come out as pre-cut bars.


200g Digestive Biscuits
100g butter, melted
2 cups (175g) milk chocolate, roughly chopped
1 cup coconut flakes
1 cup flaked almonds
1 cup plain granola
385g tin condensed milk


  • Line a 20 x 20cm baking tin with greaseproof paper. Preheat your oven to 160°C.
  • Crush the digestive biscuits into fine crumbs using a food processor or rolling pin.
  • Pour the melted butter into the prepared tin. Sprinkle over the digestive biscuit crumbs evenly.
  • Sprinkle over the chocolate chunks, coconut flakes, flaked almonds and granola in that order.
  • Lastly pour the condensed milk over evenly, then bake for 30 minutes.
  • Allow the Magic Bars to cool in the tin for 10 minutes, then remove and cool completely before slicing into squares.

    Sweetened condensed milk or evaporated milk? I imagine it’s the thick, sweetened one.

    These are absolutely delicious. We thought they would be sweet based on the ingredients but they are actually very balanced in flavor. One of our new favourite sweet treat
