Chocolate Mint Magic Cookie Bars

These Chocolate Mint Magic Cookie Bars are chewy and rich and the green chips would be a fun treat for St. Patrick's Day. I've really come to love these bar type cookies, they're easy to assemble and always bake up nice (unlike some cookies that can spread too much in the oven).
 Gooey coconut and pecans...
An Oreo crust with a minty chocolate chip topping...
You know you want one:@)
I found the Nestle Chips at Dollar Tree, it's like a scavenger hunt every time I go there... 
You never know what you'll find next:@)

Chocolate Mint Magic Cookie Bars-from Nestle.com
2 C finely ground Oreos-around 15 cookies
1/4 C butter, melted
1 1/2 C chopped nuts-I used pecans
1 C coconut*
14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
1 2/3 C Nestle Toll House Dark Chocolate and Mint Morsels-1 C is fine if you want to cut back
  1. Place cookie crumbs in a 9x13" pan (I lined mine with Reynolds Release), pour butter over crumbs and mix well. Press crumbs down into pan evenly. 
  2. Sprinkle with nuts and coconut. *I measured the coconut then gave it a quick whirl in the food chopper.
  3. Pour sweetened condensed milk over everything, be sure to pour some down the sides too. 
  4. Top with chocolate/mint chips. Press down slightly.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees (325 for a glass pan) for 20-25 minutes or until light golden brown around the edges. 
  6. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. 
  7. Cut into squares and enjoy!
Have a sticky sweet happy day!

  1. I assume these crumbs for the base would NOT be gluten free? They do look yummy
