Magic Cookie Bars – my way – Majestically

Eagle brand has a recipe for magic cookie bars on their can that sounds yummy, but I changed years ago to reflect my families preferences and called them Majestic Cookie Bars.

1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cup ground ginger snaps and vanilla wafers*
14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup butterscotch chips**
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter chips**
1/2 cup golden raisins
1 cup minced walnuts
1 cup shredded coconut

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Melt the butter in the bottom of a 13×9 baking dish.
  • Sprinkle cookie crumbs over butter evenly.
  • Pour milk over crumbs evenly.
  • Sprinkle the remaining ingredients in order listed over milk evenly pressing down slightly with the spatula so they sink slightly into the milk base.
  • Bake until lightly browned – about 25 minutes.
  • Store tightly at room temperature.

*I have also used the remaining crumbs from whatever was in the cookie jar last with great success.

**I sometimes substitute 1 1/4 cup raspberry jam instead of the peanut butter and butterscotch chips for fruity taste. If using the jam, chill the baking dish after adding the milk for 10-15 minutes before adding remaining ingredients and baking. Chilling the milk gives a firmer base to be able to evenly spread the jam over it. Also be sure to add the jam on top of the milk before the chunky ingredients.

Doing them all make great additions to help keeping me on track and finding so new recipes!

Oh my goodness. This sounds amazing. This sounds a lot like one of my favorite bars that my best friend makes, only perhaps better because you add golden raisins and walnuts. Oh I am going to make myself some of these Majestic Bars.


This sounds delicious. It reminds me of a pie (I can’t remember the name) that Jedd’s Mom makes! So rich and delicious I am sure! Thanks so much for playing!
