Magic bars are not filled with magic, but they are something special. I first started making these when I was doing my internship at a bakery in Louisville, and I thought they were interesting, but I never actually tasted them. I know crazy right. Fast forward to me working at a restaurant with a bakery market here in Nashville. They also had magic bars on the prep sheet. It wasn’t until then that I tried these for the first time and was blown away! I thought to myself “why did it take me 7 months to try these?!” These bars are filled with toasted coconut, semi sweet chocolate chips, and a buttery graham cracker crust. An best of all magic bars are so easy to make with only 5 ingredients! I hope you love this recipe as much as I do!
