My name is Sarah and I am so excited to be here today! Allison was my roomie at the SNAP blogging conference and is a fellow Coloradan. We are tight.
I blog over at Bombshell Bling (formerly Craft Quickies), which is a creative blog that covers everything from recipes and sewing tutorial to jewelry making and kid crafts. I hope that you will pop by and see what I have been up to!
This week I will be sharing recipes, holiday ideas, and start the process of revealing my dad’s house remodel and redecorating! Whew! I’m tired just thinking about it!
However, without further adieu, today I am sharing with you one of my favorite 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.) 😉
To make these cookie bars you will need the following ingredients:
-2 cups graham cracker crumbs
-1/4 cup sugar
-1 stick (8 Tablespoons) butter, melted
-1 bag (2 cups) semi-sweet chocolate chips
-1 bag (2 cups) white chocolate chips
-1 cup shredded coconut
-1 can sweetened condensed milk
First things first: preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Now it’s time to start making your graham cracker crust.
Combine the graham cracker crumbs and sugar. Stir them together and then add the melted butter. Stir it in evenly with a fork.
You can even get a few little helpers involved if you want. 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!
Now sprinkle the bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips evenly over the crust.
