Magic Bars

This recipe has been floating around homes for a long time. You may already know it as 7 Layer Magic Bars. It can be easily tweaked to suit your tastes. I made mine with 8 layers with the addition of some toffee bits. If you don’t like an ingredient, just leave it out except maybe the crust because you’ll probably need that!

Magic Bars - Layers upon layers of sweetness! This decadent treat is filled with butterscotch, chocolate, toffee, coconut and nuts.

These bars are sublime. They are bursting with a variety of sweet flavours and different textures. I finished them off with a layer of almonds, walnuts and coconut. If you haven’t made Magic Bars yet, you are missing out.
