Crock Pot Magic Bars

The idea for this idea came from our favorite Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook but Barbara modified it using our mom’s recipe.

Our Mom makes Seven Layer Bars (also called Magic Bars) every Christmas. It’s just one of the many Christmas cookies she makes.

When we say many, think at least a dozen different types of cookies including Dainty Logs, Three Layer Chocolate Squares, Chocolate Nut Cookies, French Buttercreams and Granny’s Sugar Cookies.

A great thing about most of the cookies Mom makes is that they all freeze really well. As you can probably guess, Mom has to start baking weeks before the holidays to be able to make all the different cookies so she’s mastered the art of freezing cookies over the years!

You can essentially dump in all of the ingredients, walk away, and come back to perfectly baked Crock Pot Seven Layer Bars.

Notes About Crock Pot Seven Layer Bars:

  • Barbara used her casserole crock pot for this recipe and it was – in her words – perfection!
  • For easy removal from the crock pot, layer two sheets of parchment paper so that they hang over the insert. Once the cookies are done baking, pull on the sheets and the entire pan of cookies will remove easily.
  • It’s so great to be able to pull a couple of tins out of the freezer and have yummy cookies throughout the holiday season!
  • For the nut layer in these slow cooker magic bars, we prefer to use pecans or walnuts.
  • For the coconut, use the sweetened variety.
