These coconut magic bars (sometimes called magic cookie bars) are so easy to make that it’s almost funny.

It doesn’t seem like something so TASTY could result from layering a few ingredients in a baking dish. Y’all, these coconut magic bars are like HEAVEN.

I don’t typically go for dessert recipes that are quite this decadent, but I am just such a huge fan of the flavor combination. I am in love with coconut, chocolate and pecans.

I could literally eat a whole pan of these bars!

  4. These are delicious!  Currently making my second batch in as many weeks.  Thanks for sharing! 

  5. Oh yeah for me these would be magic alright, they would disappear quickly! I like this combination of flavors, I bet ithas a hint of an almond joy taste with the coconut and the chocolate. I wonder if you can put some almond extract in? Hmmm

  6. Going to give these a try!

  7. I have made these for years, 30+, but never put brown sugar in crust. They are so seeet without. As a small history lesson, my Mother made them too but they called them “Hello Dolly’s”.
