by Country Spoon

An ooey gooey cookie bar piled with Halloween favorites – chocolate candy bars, peanuts, pretzels and candy corn. A festive spin on the traditional “Magic” bar with graham cracker crust and sticky coconut. These are one of those treats you make and plan to give away… so tasty you will eat them all before you know it.  Trick or treat? Treat, please… Happy Halloween!

Candied Treat Bars:

2 c. graham crackers – crumbled

1 stick salted butter – melted

1  14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk

2 c. sweetened shredded coconut

a handful of pretzels

1/4 c. dry roasted peanuts

4 mini candy bars – chopped

1/2 c. candy corn

1/2 c. candy pumpkins

Preheat oven to 350. Combine melted butter with graham cracker crumbs in a small bowl. Grease a 9×13 baking pan. Add graham cracker mixture and press with a rubber spatula to make a smooth crust.  Pour sweetened condensed milk over graham cracker crust.  Sprinkle with coconut and top with pretzels, candy bars, peanuts and half of the candy corn and pumpkins. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes until slightly golden.  Remove from oven and press remaining candy corn and pumpkins into the hot cookie bars.  Let cool completely before cutting.  Wrap them in parchment paper and give them away as festive treats!
