Magic Bars

By Chef Tessa Turcotte-Novosedlik


  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup pecans, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cup graham crumbs
  • 1/4 ground nutmeg
  • 14 oz sweetened condensed milk (1 can)
  • 1 cup dried cranberries, coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut


  • Preheat oven to 325F and line a 13x9 inch baking dish with parchment paper.
  • In a small pot, melt the butter and set aside.
  • Combine the graham crumbs, pecans and ground nutmeg in a bowl. Mix in melted butter and combine thoroughly. Press evenly into the bottom of a prepared 13x9 inch baking dish.
  • Pour the sweetened condensed milk over the graham crumb base. Spread evenly.
  • Top with dried cranberries, chocolate chips and unsweetened shredded coconut. Lightly press the toppings into the base.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the top is lightly browned. Note, it may take longer to bake if using a glass baking dish.
