Make These Magic Cookie Bars for Christmas!

Every Christmas cookie plate needs something really ooey-gooey rich and decadent. These bars are perfect! Be sure to cut them fairly small. I've also heard them called 7 Layer Bars and Hello Dollies.

I haven't made them in years. I didn't read the recipe carefully and that was a mistake. I added the sweetened condensed milk last. Should have added it right on top of the graham cracker layer. The coconut doesn't show ... and I think it would look prettier if the coconut showed! You should definitely consider making these bars cuz they're really good!
