Christopher Robin Magic Cookie Bars

Magic Cookie Bars are the simplest but most delicious cookie recipe!  A family favorite!

Today I am sharing with you one of my favorite super simple recipes: Christopher Robin Magic Cookie Bars.  I’m not sure where the name for these cookie bars came from.  I have seen similar recipes called layered cookie bars, but for some reason my sister calls them Christopher Robin Magic Cookie Bars.  She used to make them all the time in college, because they are simple enough for a cooking-inept college girl to make.  EVEN ME!  I used to be the WORST cook.  Seriously.  Just ask my college BFF.  She has some tales to tell…..I have even messed up a BROWNIE MIX before!  I guess the old saying is really true: Practice Makes Perfect!  (Or at least practice makes adequate.)  ;)

The exact measurements for this are below, but here is the process in a nutshell.  You will need a graham cracker crust, semi-sweet chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, shredded coconut, and sweetened condensed milk.

First I made a graham cracker crust with graham cracker crumbs, a bit of sugar, and melted butter.  I even had a few little helpers involved!  This is the first time my little girl has wanted to help me cook.  She is irresistibly cute, but she is growing up way too quickly for her mama’s liking!

    My mom often made these and we loved them too! She called them Hello Dolly bars.
    They freeze really well too…. if you need to hide a few away for your “stash”.

    These look super yummy! I’m a pretty big Winnie the Pooh fan… I’m guessing they’re called Christopher Robin Bars because pooh loves honey & sweetened condensed milk. Just had to share ;) Looking forward to making these!

    Just one question. Do you use the sweetened shredded coconut or unsweetened? These sound amazing and I’m going to make them this weekend. Thank you for the recipe
