Tropical Magic Bars are soft, chewy, and perfect for snacking or gifting! Loaded with dried mango and pineapple, shredded coconut, and white milk chocolate on a golden graham crust, they’re sure to hit the sweet spot!
Magic bars are one of my favorite sweet treats. They’re a type of dessert wherein the ingredients are layered one on top of the next in a pan and then baked until soft and chewy with a bit of crunch.
With toasted nuts, shredded coconut, chocolate chips, and condensed milk piled over a buttery graham crust, these cookie bars are pretty hard to resist. They’re seriously addictive!
The cookie bars are not only delicious but versatile, too. While the buttery graham crust that acts as the base and the sweetened condensed that glues everything together are essential components, the rest of the ingredients are fair game.
While the recipe below is fantabulous as is and dried mangoes, pineapples, coconut shavings, and candied lime peels do work well, you can definitely experiment with other options. Check out my suggested substitutions below and pick your favorite combinations!
Another component of these dessert treats that makes them super yummy is the buttery graham cracker crust. You can buy ready graham cracker crumbs from the store or crush the crackers yourself using either of the two methods below.
Crumble the crackers and place in a food processor. Pulse a few times until they turn into fine crumbs
These tropical cookie bars are sure to hit the sweet spot. They’re the perfect treat to enjoy for a snack, to bring to potlucks and parties, or to give out as homemade gifts.
They’re so simple to make, you can have a batch ready in a cinch. Just prepare the crust, layer the toppings, and pop in the oven until golden yet soft and chewy.
