These have been around forever! I remember my mom making these in the 60's and 70's! Always loved them.
This is a very good bar . I also saw this on Paulla Deen show and wanted to try it.I was a little suprised when I looked on my can of Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk and found the exact recipe. called Magic Cookie Bars. Looks like Paula's "used" someone else's recipe as her's again.
Saw this recipe on Paulas show last sunday and thought I would try it. WOW these are good! The coconut gets all toasted. My family fell in love and I did too since they are a breeze to make. Hardest part is waiting for them to cool.
